Paternoster Heritage Festival (Paternoster)

Paternoster Heritage Festival close to Big Bay Self Catering Accommodation Apartments

After two successful festivals in a row, Paternoster's volunteer committee is doing it again! The third Paternoster Heritage Festival takes place on 24 September 2010 from 9am until late afternoon, this year on bigger ground on and around the fish market.

The Paternoster Heritage Festival's local volunteer-committee-vision is to pledge enough money to be able to take grade 7 pupils of St Augustine Primary School for educational trips, i.e. to the Fossil Park, to Cape Town to visit Two Ocean Aquarium, Iziko museum, etc. Highlights will be a number of adventurous competitions such as kreef bakkie rowing, bokkom skil, skattejag, Paternoster Pop Stars and more. Tools, cell phones, gift and accommodation vouchers, hampers and more are waiting for the winners of these entertaining competitions.

Arts & crafts as well as a White Elephant stall, water wise info, beach games, horse riding, kayaking for children, NSRI and SANCOB will be rounding off the family day. The dog detection units of SARS and SAPS will be doing demonstrations on how effective their 4-legged colleagues are working.

Local is lekker will guarantee a wide selection of typical West Coast food to delight your taste buds in between.

In order to raise money for the Paternoster Children's Fund a fun walk along the coastline takes place prior to the festival. Join the "Trek to Paternoster" for 6 days (or part of it 18 - 23 September 2010, more details at end of article) and make this incredible journey of walking approx. 130 km along the beach from Elandsbaai to Paternoster an unforgettable experience in your life. After last year's successful walk, the local Paternoster Village Tourism Vice-Chairperson and organiser Sandelé Wilkinson (083 211 1400) is challenging the amount of last year donations. Her vision is not to have only local walkers but also to have visitors from up country to be part of this event. As this fun walk is for charity, it is expected of each participant to donate a minimum of R 50/day to the Paternoster Children's Fund.

Paternoster Village Tourism is fully dependent on sponsors for competition prizes. Any donations from small to large, whether in cash or in form of T-Shirts, caps, vouchers, gift hampers, etc are welcome.
