Rustenburg show 2013
The Rustenburg platinum show is one of those calendar events that everyone in Rustenburg knows off. This year the theme is ‘Rustenburg in the year 2013’. With entertainment for every culture and subculture this year’s show promises to be a little different than previous years. The focus will be much more local, much more ‘Rustenburg culture.’
“We want to promote the traditions and culture of Rustenburg. Give ourselves, show what Rustenburg has to offer” says Thabo Joseph Sechele the head planner and organiser of the event. “Because we want to promote local culture, we want to incorporate things of every culture. For example a ‘Boere’ music show, rock and roll and even traditional African shows”. “We want to also bring back things like a cheese making section, where people can actively participate” Thabo adds.
There will be many things to do at this year’s show: Helicopter rides, Hot air balloons, a youth celebration, arts and culture sections and much more. Of course the traditional Rustenburg show elements will also be implemented.
“We want to share our selves, open doors and build something together. Show what it means to live in Rustenburg”. Working together with the NYDA (National youth development agency) Thabo believes that this year’s show will be something special. There is reason to look forward to one of the biggest annual events in Rustenburg.
