Being able to say “I attended the very first one” is a line usually reserved only for festival-fanatics who are in-the-know. Those who don’t listen to people saying how ‘it’s not gonna be that great anyway’, because they know it is going to be that great. Today’s Groupon gives you a heads-up on the first happening of a festival giant – get a one-day entry to the very first Cradle Festival for only R22,50, you can be sure it’s going to be that great.
Sure to be spoken about at many braais, kitchen teas and office meetings to come, the Cradle Festival is definitely high on this year’s not-to-be-missed list. The Festival is the brain child of the Leverage Corporation and takes place from 6 to 15 May. In association with Maropeng and the Gauteng Government, this event is sure to rock The Cradle of Humankind, the historical and memorable venue where this spectacular event is to be held. From babies in cradles and their parents, to the hip, the young and the happening – the Cradle Festival has something to lure and entertain one and all.
This big event will be cradle-packed with spectacular live performances, activities, competitions, sporting events and hours of fun for the whole family. Pick-‘n-choose lip-smacking eats from the spread of food stalls, chill in the beer tent or enter the fun run or walk. Whether you come with friends, come with in-laws or come by your lonesome self, you’re sure to bump into a familiar face you’ve either seen on the street or on TV.
With a well-equipped kids’ play area, the young ones can have the time of their little lives while their parents and siblings do “boooring stuff”. This “stuff” includes shopping, fashion shows and potjiekos competitions, hotdog eating contests and live entertainment by some of South Africa’s brightest starts.
Head over to the Cradle of Humankind for a day of fun, laughter and memorable moments. Come next year, you’ll be one of the fortunate few who can say “been there, done that, got the 2011 t-shirt and so going back this year!”
