OUR Country’s biggest consumer show, The Rand Show, promises to bring hundreds of lifestyle-related exhibits, great deals’ shopping, and a top-class line-up of entertainment.
After spending this morning walking about around the show grounds and halls, I marvelled at the sounds of hammers, crackling steel and brooms as seasonal workers put their shoulder on the wheels doing the last finishes before the show starts tomorrow (April 6th).
After years of attending the show – I can assure you I’ve missed only a few in the past 28 years since I first attended when I was only 12-years-old – I stopped at the area where artificial water pool and a very high stand was being erected for the Flying Fools High Dive team from Canada. Organisers say these crazy souls will be performing in SA for the first time, which means the Rand Show will have the new-and-exclusive attraction.
My kids last year amazed me when the wanted to spend an hour and half watching the circus at the Rand Show. I did let them go while I used the unsolicited break to breath and cold beer at one of the spots inside the arena. I noticed workers cleaning up the area where the Kids Theatre will be hosted and there are snake shows planned. I won’t be the guest there, but my wife has no fear of snake. I have no doubt she’d want to see and would most likely take the kids.
