There are few better ways to celebrate all that a Cape Town summer’s day in the height of the festive season has to offer than a family day out at the Grand Parade Cape Guineas 2015.
Taking place at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday, December 19, this is the third annual Grand Parade Cape Guineas Day, an event that is increasing in popularity each year and becoming a firm favourite on the Western Cape racing calendar.
Not only will racegoers enjoy nine high profile races, including the R1 million Grand Parade Cape Guineas GR1 Race, but there will be an abundance of mystery, magic and surprise acts – all as part of the GrandWest Paradiso Lounge, which will offer guests live entertainment and a comfortable lounge area with front row views of the racetrack. Tickets into this area are R50 each and are available at the door on the day along with a free cocktail. There will also be a cash bar and gourmet food trucks.
Hospitality options are also available in the Somerset Room for an enticing buffet lunch at R250 per person.
For those with little ones, there is the Burger King SA Family Day where children can have fun jumping, sliding and navigating in a giant inflatable park. They can also have their photo taken with Santa, and be entertained by face painters, balloon shapers, puppets shows and magicians. Tickets into this area are only R20 each.
A large part of this event every year is to give back to those in need. Racegoers are urged to volunteer at the Stop Hunger Now tent as they aim to pack 25920 meals to feed hungry children on the day.
* Racing starts at 12pm and general access entrance is free.
Kenilworth Racecourse is located on Rosemead Avenue, Kenilworth. Public Parking will be available at the Wetton Road entrance.
