It’s that time of the year again for the DStv Mitchells Plain Festival.
This weekend’s festival is a special one as it celebrates 40 years since Mitchells Plain was established.
Organisers expect to see 40 000 people through the gates at the Westridge
Gardens from today until Sunday.
And there will be lots to see and do at the festival, which is a highlight on the Kaap’s events calender.
Besides the food stalls there is also a car and air show and displays by the SANDF.
The SA Army, SA Navy, SA Air Force, SA Medical Services and the SA Signal Services are once again bringing their exhibitions to the Mitchells Plain Festival.
There will be 60 DJs on stage, and a host of singers and dancers.
If that isn’t exciting enough, there is also R500 000 up for grabs in prizes to be won by festival goers over the weekend.
And if you still have some energy left, then join the mass exercise event with fitness instructor Reemay Damons which is happening on Sunday morning at 8am at the Westridge Gardens
Gates open at 9am this weekend and entrance tickets are R44 per person.
Children under-6 and pensioners enter free.
No illegal drugs or alcohol will be allowed in.
