FROM live music to satisfy all tastes, and a new fountain spectacle, to top comedy and plenty of fun for the kids, it will be an action-packed Easter Weekend for the whole family at Port Elizabeth’s Boardwalk.
“As the metro’s tourism and leisure hotspot, we have made sure there is plenty to keep all ages amused and entertained over Easter,” public relations and entertainment manager Caley Phillips said.
Kids can have their photos taken with the Easter Bunny at Zoomwiz, enter The Croods colour-in competition, decorate biscuits, pin a tail on the donkey, have their faces painted and hunt for eggs – while the rest of the family enjoys the Boardwalk’s shops and food outlets.
“Be sure to come and see the new-look Craft Workshop,” Phillips said.
For over 18s the free after- dark entertainment in the casino’s action bar includes Charmaine Allison with DJ Pete Larkin today; Chapter Three on Saturday night and Lee-Ann Wales with her unique mix of R&B soul jazz on Sunday afternoon.
Today, on Good Friday, comedy lovers are invited to celebrate Easter with an aching tummy – not from all the sweet Easter eggs – but from laughing a bit out loud in the Amphitheatre.
Darren Maule – better known for his role on the hit TV series Survivor – will be the host for the evening.
He will be joined by Ndumiso Lindi, known for his trademark hat and funky urban look, and Jason Goliath.
Goliath says he couldn’t put all his funny into a small body, so he expanded it to a larger physique to keep his fans’ Easter weight off by keeping them on the edge of their seats.
Tickets can be bought from Computicket for R60 per person. On Saturday at 8pm, a new show, billed as “the best that Cape Town has to offer” will be staged at the Amphitheatre.
Cape Town in Concert features Gavin Roman, who has taken Cape Town by storm with his soulful voice and his own interpretation of old and new songs.
Joining him on stage will be Saadiqa Davids, Janine Cupido and Zubsair Vardien.
Tickets are available from Computicket at R100.
There is also free entertainment at the complex throughout the day on Saturday, plus the latest Rhapsody on Water multimedia fountain spectacular on the Boardwalk lake.
“This is a whole new show that sends shivers down your spine it is so beautiful,” enthused Phillips.
Ending off on a high, top South African band Prime Circle will be at the Amphitheatre on Sunday.
The show starts at 8pm and tickets can be bought from Computicket at R140.
