It’s that time of the year when residents across the Far South gather at Fish Hoek beach to wish away the winter blues.
Line dancing, sand castles, treasure hunts and a big splash will take centre stage at this year’s Spring Splash. The annual event will take place on Sunday 7 September and will kick off just after noon.
At 15:00 hordes of beachgoers dressed in their favourite outfit will take part in the big dip.
The launch was held at Fish Hoek Beach last week where well-known businessmen and City of Cape Town councillors dressed up for a pre-splash.
Organiser Manu Choudree explains the event is about creating a fun family outing for all to enjoy. There will also be an attempt to break the line dance record, where organisers are trying to gather 1000 people to participate.
Old favourites such as the sand castle competition and treasure hunts will also be held.
This year, residents are also encouraged to bring video cameras and smartphones to record the splash. Choudree says those wanting to enter will have to fill in an entry form and load their videos on YouTube.
“The video which receives the most hits will then be named the winner. The prizes will be confirmed shortly,” he says.
He explains sports clubs have been invited to attend.
Fish Hoek Central Improvement District (CID) director Mike Reaper says they have spoken with City officials and Shark Spotters to ensure the shark net is deployed on the day.
“We want to promote Fish Hoek Beach as a safe swimming beach,” he says.
Meanwhile Herbie Eichel, owner of the Galley Restaurant, says there will be a variety of treats on sale. For more information, phone Choudree on 0729804335.
