The air was fun filled with shouts of joy and laughter as kids enjoyed face painting and various indigenous games.

The programme for the day was structured in such a way that the main focus was on the heritage which the artists portrayed through their song, dance and poetic talent.

Formal speeches were limited to a minimum, but included the Welcoming by Ward Cllr Wayne Craig, Purpose of the event by Speaker Cllr Annelise Olivier and the introduction of the key note speaker by Bitou Executive Mayor Cllr Memory Booysen. The Key Note Speaker; Western Cape MEC of Transport and Public Works Donald Grant, who in his speech acknowledged the origin and importance of the diverse and rich heritage we as South Africans share.
