After browsing through the market, visitors will be able to relax under the trees while tucking into their delicious
eats from the market. Groote Post’s award-winning restaurant, Hilda’s Kitchen, will be open as usual, but please
note that booking is essential. The kids, as always, will be kept busy with a wide variety of kiddies’ activities –
tractor rides, face-painting, water-balls, guided horse rides and, of course, the popular playground. Although pets
are welcome – all dogs must be on a leash at all times. Visitors arriving without their dogs on a leash will be given
an option to buy one from the SPCA stall or hire one at the information stall.
