Going into its third consecutive year, this event promises to be as interesting and as much fun for all. Last year the number of people who arrived surprised even the organisors and what was even more surprising was the effort that almost everyone had put into their costumes for the evening.
Paul Roux Village is well known for its ghost stories, and not all the stories are distant past. Several of the residents in the village today have tales to tell of what they have personally experienced. This year we will be following a different walk to that of last year - full of history and tales. For those arriving on the Friday night, there is a braai at the Pink Tricycle.
You can make bookings through firstname.lastname@example.org or 083 226 3309. Please also inform if you will be at the Friday braai as well - R65 braai pack and free salads, potato salad and pap.Cash bar.
Accommodation details are on the poster above.
