THERE is only a week left be­fore the in­au­gu­ral Great Out­doors Expo takes place at the Dur­ban Shong­weni Club, so get your tick­ets on­line be­fore they sell out.

This expo aims to show­case new out­door lifestyle prod­ucts with in­no­va­tive brands and takes place on November 17 and 18. The expo will cover var­i­ous as­pects of the out­door lifestyle, from bakkies, Un­i­mogs (multi-pur­pose all-wheel-drive trucks), car­a­vans and off-road trail­ers, to 4x4 ac­ces­sories and camp­ing equip­ment, as well as boats, moun­tain bikes and mo­tor­bike stands.

Test your driv­ing skills on a 4x4 course cre­ated by the KwaZulu-Natal 4WD club, or take a flip with JNC He­li­copters.

For the kids, there will be an amaz­ing “In­flat­able City”, with 11 gi­ant in­flat­a­bles set up for them to go wild on.

There will also be paint­ball, pony rides, Xtreme Archery, and loads of flea-mar­ket stands.

The Hansa beer gar­den will keep you cool and hy­drated, and the all-im­por­tant trendy gin and cock­tail bars will be ready to African News Agency (ANA) serve up the best our coun­try has to of­fer.

There will be live mu­sic, and loads of craft food and tasty treats avail­able to keep even the hun­gri­est fam­ily mem­ber sat­is­fied.

If that is not enough, the main stage will keep you en­ter­tained, with Gavin Fer­gu­son play­ing his dis­tinc­tive tunes, award­win­ning hip-hop dancers West Crew will be strut­ting their stuff, and a Gi­ant Ham­burg­ereat­ing com­pe­ti­tion will chal­lenge the brave.
