Zini arts festival draws large numbers
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’.
