In just a few days time, the Wild Clover Farm will be celebrating World Hoop Day with a day of colour, dance, entertainment and hula-hooping fun! The event takes place on the 4th October 2014 (World Hoop Day) and offers up a nice family friendly alternative to Rocking the Daisies. The global event, brought to life by 4LeafAgency in South Africa, HoopFlowLove and the UPliftment Programme, aims to spread joy to all people, young and old and to those less fortunate, through the joy and the craft of hooping.
Hula Hoops have been around for centuries and since the 1950’s craze hula hoops have seen a massive revival (mostly due to hippies at trance parties). This fun activity, for all ages and fitness levels, is now creating circles of love around the world and South Africans will, no doubt, be showing their support!
World Hoop Day at the Wild Clover will be jam-packed with entertainment such as free art and hula hooping workshops, hoop games, circus and fire performances, small petting farm, face painting as well as great music entertainment by Mark Haze, Manouche, K Ray and the Bird with the gorgeous actress Nikki Jackman as MC.
There will be plenty of entertainment for kids, and a fully stocked bar for adults, as well as a selection of delicious food and craft stalls. There will also be a Guinness World Record attempt for the ‘Greatest distance travelled on a slackline while juggling 3 objects” – live from the festival!
“World Hoop Day 2014 is about creating spaces for people of all ages, races, genders, sizes and religions to come together for a day of fun”, “It’s about experiencing health, joy and love through movement of the body, and we invite people from all walks of life to join us in celebrating this day!”.
– says Basil John Scordilis, co-founder of HoopFlowLove
Proceeds from the day will be going towards The UPliftment Programme and its subsidiary SA Hoop For Life.
