2007 sees the Randfontein Show “come of age”. In this, the 21st year of existence, the Show continues to offer great value for money. At what has been dubbed by the media “Die Lekkerste Kuier Skou”, the show offers a festive vibe, great food and a host of entertainment to suit young and old.
Where else, for an entry fee of only R25 for adults and R10 for children from 6-12 and under 6’s free, can one see top South African music artists perform, shop at hundreds of different and interesting stalls, watch dogs and horses perform, witness men of muscle arm wrestle and see a bevy of beauties compete for a glittering crown, to mention a few of the great attractions on offer each year?
Top artists like Robbie Wessels, Bok van Blerk, Brandon October, Amor, Patricia Lewis’ “Supersterre” Competition, Navi Redd, Limpopo, Johnny & Vivian, Blackie Swart, JJ Stevens, Hi-5 and others, will perform on two high-quality sound stages over the four-day period.
For the sporty types – support the Randfontein Charity Golf Challenge and Harmony Gold Cycle Challenge in aid of charity. Bow hunters and archers will have the opportunity to talk to Michel Casanova, Directory of PSE Archery South Africa, who holds numerous medals in archery. Something for the much younger sport-orientated males and females: Tau Rugby and Netball matches for 7 and 8 year olds.
For those not interested in sport but who enjoy the outdoors, there are a number of outdoor and leisure exhibitors, as well as 15 vehicle exhibitors who will be offering special “show deals”. Prize-winning Brahman livestock will be on display and competition winners paraded though the show grounds for everyone to see.
The ever-popular Miss Randfontein Show beauty pageant has been inundated with entries from surrounding towns over the past few years. The previous two winners, Lelani Botha (2005) and Megan Crohnin (2006), have gone on to win loads of other titles and hope to one day wear the Miss SA crown. Jag Models, a professional modelling agency, is contracted to arrange the beauty pageant and always puts on a spectacular show with a bevy of beauties in stunning costumes. The junior competition, Little Miss Show Queen, on Saturday, 3rd of March, offers younger lasses the chance to impress judges.
From humble beginnings, the Randfontein Show is today the fourth largest show of its kind, attracting commercial, industrial, agricultural and tourism exhibitors. It spans five rugby fields and offers secure parking. The flat terrain, green grass and well organised layout of stalls and events, makes it one of the more popular shows amongst exhibitors.
