Our planning time was limited and we wanted to do something very special for the children and adults of Touwsrivier community. Everything, like a well-oiled team, fell into place. Soon the tangible excitement and reality of the Market Days could be felt at Touwsrivier Tourism as well as in the community.
Finally, 18h00 arrives on Friday, December 21, just a few days before Christmas. Stalls are visible everywhere, Christmas Carols invite the guests from all over. Smells of delicious food, delicacies, and handmade products are sold everywhere. The spirit goes high as hundreds of children wait for Father Christmas to make his appearance. Hundreds of gift packages were handed out. The joy and smiles on each child's face were unforgettable. Not one child went home empty-handed. Our first day of the festival is on a high note to an end.
