Noordhoek Country Fair

Today is the annual Noordhoek Country fair. I had a meeting with a client of mine, and what better place to have a meeting than at the fair. The fair is a lovely place to spend a couple of hours with the family. They had plenty of great food and drinks (I bought some balsamic and habamaro vinegar which I am going to have on my fresh Tuna tonight.)

There are also horserides, live bands, presentations and crafts. The fair is held on Noordhoek common and all money from the door goes to various conservation and community causes.

A giant puppet, made by the Masiphumelele community. She was controlled by about 5 people, providing independent movement of both arms, legs the the head.

This impressed me; a trumpeter from Masiphumelele, playing two trumpets at the same time.

Yes, it did not take me long to find the coffee bar at the Noordhoek Fair.

Finally, even puppets need some time out, or maybe she just had too much to drink in the sun :-)

    I saw this puppet on the roof of a car the other day! Wondered what it was. Sorry to have missed the Noordhoek fair. Next year I will look out for it.

    It seems like she gets out quite a lot then; quite the socialite
