Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO CITY BEAT - Larry Bent­ley

The Mtun­zini Rotary Club, or­gan­is­ers of the Mtun­zini Arts in the Shade fes­ti­val, held their thumbs on Satur­day as the weather threat­ened the ex­hi­bi­tion with rain and wind.

For­tu­nately the rain stayed away, but the wind had stall hold­ers hav­ing to se­cure their stands, but no dam­age was re­ported.

The pub­lic streamed through the gates through­out the day and were treated to a high stan­dard of art, ac­com­pa­nied with good food and en­ter­tain­ment..

The chil­dren were kept busy with var­i­ous art projects, in­clud­ing large can­vasses which fo­cused on the themes ‘I love Madiba’, ‘I love na­ture’ and ‘I love South Africa’.
