Fun Fair's in South Africa

Hi All,

Besides Ratange Junction, Gold Reef City and the Durban beach front, what other fun fairs exist in SA? Anyone got any photos?

Thank you

A lot of the other fun fairs are temporary, and around from city to city. One just completed here in Potchefstroom for the Spring Festival this past month-end of August. Others are found at major shows in other towns.

> Jo'burg Fest, in Easter, Nasrec.
> Pretoria show, usually around Spring, Pretoria show grounds
>Rustenburg Show, in Easter, Rustenburg show grounds.

It's not Durban Beachfront it is Ushaka Marine World. You also have SunCity.
