A PUMP­KIN PIT STOP

Road Trip - - ROAD STOPS -

Just 275 km from Cape Town lies the unas­sum­ing town of Hei­del­berg. An oth­er­wise quiet dor­pie, this town be­comes a hub of ac­tiv­ity for the an­nual Gi­ant Pump­kin Fes­ti­val. Held on 23-24 March, this year the event will be big­ger than ever – and we are not just talk­ing about the pump­kins! The fes­tiv­i­ties kick off with a fun day of golf, as well as a 15 km trail run and a 25 km moun­tain bike cy­cle event. End­ing off the day is a hearty Ox Braai ac­com­pa­nied by live mu­sic and an open dance­floor. For your smaller com­pan­ions, the day will be filled with events such as the Pump­kin Tug of War, a jump­ing cas­tle, putt-putt, a climb­ing wall, wa­ter slide, face paint­ing, and much more. Overnight camp­ing ad­ja­cent to the show­grounds will be made avail­able, and the local ac­com­mo­da­tion of­fers tempt­ing overnight op­tions.
