Thank you Las Paletas!! Last week I received info about the Cape Getaway Show 2016 and although camping is one of my ultimate favourite down-time activities, due to a commitment-filled week and weekend I didn’t give it much thought.

Yesterday I entered a competition with Las Paletas purely because the tickets came with free icecream ALL day… and I won! Free icecream is enough to put an event into the diary, so I’ve cleared my schedule for tomorrow and heading off to Lourensford Estate for a day out in the country with my 7 year old son. He won’t believe his luck when he’s allowed more than one icecream in a day 🙂

The line-up sounds pretty interesting, so if you’re thinking of heading out that way this weekend, here’s the info  (provided by KLPR)…

Don’t miss out on the Cape Getaway Show sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Vans, coming up this weekend!


Look forward to inspiring presentations and tasty treats at the Travel and Taste Theatre, the opportunity to hang out with eagles and owls at the Eagle Encounters stand and catch Robin Auld’s ‘End of Summer’ concert on the Saturday. You can even enter the Cape Getaway Show Mountain Bike Challenge sponsored by Sportsmans Warehouse, and take in the breath-taking scenery of the Helderberg mountains.


What’s more, you can stand a chance to win 7 nights at the all-inclusive Club Med Val Thorens Sensations Ski Resort valued at R60 000! All you have to do is enter at the event.
