If you’re in Durbs and looking for something to do with the family this Heritage Day, why not head to uShaka Marine World? Prior to naming Wednesday, September 24 Heritage Day, it was known as Shaka Day, so what better place to celebrate the colourful cultures of our Country!?
There’s something for everyone with fun parades, traditional dance, music and more. Go to arena 1 at the entrance of uShaka Marine World Village Walk where you can experience the true heart of Africa with Umlazi African Jingle (Zulu Dance), Omama Boxolo (Isigekle), Amaphephethe (Wedding Singers), Mpumalanga White Birds (Isicathamiya), Bana Ba Tsoletso (Sotho Dancers) and Umuzi Wenkosi (Tswana Dancers). There’ll be pop up shops and a craft market featuring KZN’s colourful beadwork.
In the food court arena, Lee Vaughn will celebrate our Afrikaans heritage with a lively performance followed by fun filled parades celebrating our cultural heritage and diversity throughout the park. At the beach arena, you can catch Jisantha Productions with their Bollywood dancers and indulge in our province’s signature curries and samoosas.
Adding to the entertainment is Unico, a tropical two man band who play pipes / djemba drums that will be creating an east coast vibe in the Ticketing area outside Wet n Wild. Sip on a cocktail while listening to Afritude at Wahooz on the promenade, accompanied by the rhythm of banjos that will set the party mood while indulging in a traditional buy and braai with a Cape Carnival vibe.
Party on the wild side with DJ Spike at Wet ’n Wild and catch Lavida Loca performing live at Sea World with popular percussionist Bryan Clarke and his Caribbean Connection Steel Drum Band as they conjure up melodic calypso tunes, classic rock and even a steamy salsa.
This is truly a proudly South Africa celebration!
