Make a splash at Any­thing that Floats spec­tac­u­lar

Talk of the Town - - News -

It’s al­ready the end of the year and, if you want some great en­ter­tain­ment this hol­i­day sea­son, why not get to the Kar­iega River on De­cem­ber 27 or the Kowie River on De­cem­ber 28, and join in the fun as peo­ple use any non-mo­torised floata­tion de­vice to float down the river and, hope­fully, win the race.

Any­thing that Floats has been an an­nual event for many years now and be­gan on the Kar­iega River.

Some changes have oc­curred over the years, such as the di­rec­tion of the floaters that now float to­ward Ken­ton and no longer up­stream.

There was so much in­ter­est in the float ear­lier this year that the or­gan­is­ers de­cided to make way for an adult float race on De­cem­ber 27 on the Kar­iega River and a fam­ily float race on De­cem­ber 28 on the Kowie River.

For both events, Cansa (Cancer SA) will be there to pro­vide free sun­screen to the floaters and make sure ev­ery­one is sun safe.

If nec­es­sary, com­pres­sors will be avail­able to in­flate your floats.

The Any­thing that Floats on De­cem­ber 27 is an over 18s-only float and will take place from Bells Cove on the R343 to the Kar­iega River Mouth. Light re­fresh­ments will also be on sale. The float ends on the doorstep of Jeremiah’s and it will be host­ing an amaz­ing af­ter party with Al­goa FM DJ Charl­ton To­bias.

Tick­ets are R80 to float, and R120 to float and at­tend the af­ter party at Jeremiah’s. Tick­ets can be bought from Ken­ton Tourism of­fice, Ken­ton News Agency or Jeremiah’s. The or­gan­is­ers say this is the event of the year.

The Kowie Any­thing that Floats is a first this year as the or­gan­is­ers de­cided to bring some of the hype and float­ing fun to Port Al­fred res­i­dents and hol­i­day­mak­ers.

This float is aimed at chil­dren un­der the age of 18, but is not lim­ited to young kid­dies, and will be an event es­pe­cially en­joyed by teenagers. Kids un­der the age of 12 need to be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult. The float starts at the MyPond slip­way at 11am where the ho­tel will be run­ning some great spe­cials.

Par­tic­i­pants are ad­vised to ar­rive early and have break­fast.

The float ends on Kid­dies Beach and the prize-giv­ing will be held at Out­door Fo­cus, where light meals and re­fresh­ments will be sold. This float is all about good clean fun for the whole fam­ily.

This is an event for ev­ery­one. Tick­ets can be bought from Port Al­fred Tourism of­fice and Sports n All.

Tick­ets are R60 per per­son.

For ei­ther event tick­ets can also be pur­chased through the Quicket app.
