“United and celebrating our beautiful heritage under the rainbow sun”
Spring is upon us and everyone knows it’s that time of the year when everyone comes out to play. In keeping up with the vibes of Heritage month, the West Rand District Municipality has been cooking up a spectacular, new annual series of events simply titled GO WEST!
After a successful Media launch on the 24th of September at Cedar Lodge in Krugersdorp, GO WEST! is bound to take Gauteng Province by storm.
GO WEST! is a lifestyle festival that celebrates everything the West Rand has to offer. Just so you know, GO WEST! is also being developed to become one of the biggest performing arts, sports and life style festivals anywhere in South Africa.
GO WEST is a first for the West Rand and aims to encourage a sense of togetherness amongst the residents of the West Rand District Municipality. Having said that, all of Gauteng and the rest of South Africa are welcome to bring out their camping chairs, sunnies, straw hats and those cooler boxes!
If you are crazy about our special ‘West Rand’ heritage and want to have an absolute jol-non-stop, you definitely have to be part of GO WEST! There is simply no other lifestyle festival like it. It’s fresh, fun and has exciting activities and everyone is welcome! We can’t say it enough: “local is absolutely lekker”.
All the events have been planned to include participation by all four municipalities: Mogale City, Westonaria, Randfontein and Merafong City. The excitement kicks off Friday, 21 September and wraps up Sunday, 23 September 2012.
GO WEST! will meet all the entertainment needs of the residents of the West Rand and Gauteng Province, whether young or old. The festival will also be creating employment opportunities for the WRDM’s residents and at the same time injecting millions of Rands into the area’s economy.
