Title: The Langebaan Lagoon Celebration
Langebaan is going to be buzzing on the 20th and 21st of April! We live in one of the most incredible places on the planet, and it is time to celebrate all that we have.
Langebaan is a true tourism town, and for good reason. The idyllic setting on the shore of the Langebaan Lagoon, alongside the West Coast National Park, the conditions which encourage a wide variety of water sports, and our rich cultural heritage all make this the ideal place to visit.
In order to showcase all that you can see and do in Langebaan, the Saldanha Bay Tourism Organisation (SBTO), along with the Langebaan Tourism Association, has decided to host an event, the Langebaan Lagoon Celebration (Langebaan Lagoon Feesviering) on the weekend of 20 and 21 April of this year.
The focus of the event is the promotion of a series of individually managed activities, all over the same weekend, and all in celebration of the Lagoon and surrounds.
Activities which are planned include:
This will be a fun filled weekend for all, and with the wide variety of activities showcasing all there is to see and do in Langebaan and the surrounding area, there will be something for everybody.
As this event is all about celebrating Langebaan and the lagoon, there is no entry fee, and the public will be encouraged to visit the different locations across town to participate in the wide variety of activities on offer. The main activity area will be Bree Street and the Langebaan Main Beach, but the whole town will be buzzing throughout the weekend.
The Langebaan Lagoon Celebration is truly a community festival, with all sectors of the Langebaan Community becoming involved in this showcase. The core principles behind the event are to showcase all that Langebaan has to offer, and to do this in a manner which ensures maximum involvement of the whole community. Local entrepreneurs and businesses are being given preference over others in selecting stall holders and activity organisers, and a core theme is local art, craft, cuisine and culture.
Since announcing the intention to hold this event, the organisers have been overwhelmed by the positive response received from the public. The preparations are now at an advanced stage, and as such final requests for participation must reach the organisers before 15 March 2013. Any enquiries should be directed to Coleen Paul at the Langebaan Tourism Office, 022 772 1515 or email@example.com
