Festival of fun

Idols SA contestant Zoe Zana kept the crowd entertained.

Thousands flocked to the Southern Mail Family and Lifestyle Market at the weekend for plenty of fun, rides and entertainment as well as chance to meet firefighters and army and navy personnel and have a look at some of the equipment they use. The festival was held at the Maynardville Park in Wynberg, from Thursday March 3 to Sunday March 6 after a two-year break because of Covid-19.
