A Sunday Funday your Kids will Always Remember
The Blythedale Coastal Adventure Market is set on the pristine North Coast in Blythedale and boasts some of the most breathtaking views, coupled with an indigenous forest surrounding and crystal blue oceans on its doorstep. Markets are taking place monthly, with a different twist every time.
It’s time again for the next immersive Blythedale Coastal Adventure Market experience. On the 4th of August, the market will be playing host to Family Fun Fest 2019! Now, every month the organisers make sure there’s something for kids to enjoy. This Sunday the market is offering so much more to kids of all ages. Entrance is free for the whole family.
What: Blythedale Coastal Adventure Market presents Fun Fest 2019
When: Sunday 4 August
Where: Blythedale Coastal Estate
Fun Fest essentially takes elements from an American-style funfair and adds them to the unique coastal market that takes place every month. So, in addition to the usual waterslide (R50) and inflatable fun (R50), kids (and fun-loving adults) can enjoy two carnival rides and five carnival games. Tickets for the carnival rides and games are R20 each, or R70 for a package of five tickets. Fun Fest will be packed with clowns, stilt walkers, face painting and a balloon artist. A local tractor will be operating during the day, allowing families to explore the beauty of the surrounding forest.
The market continues to be like no other KZN has seen before. The concept pairs adventure activities with local vendors, creating a unique market blend. Over 65 vendors have signed up for this weekend’s offering. This includes the best artisanal food, clothing and crafts the North Coast has to offer. Guests will be spoilt for choice, with over 30 unique food stalls supplying a whole host of exotic scents and fanciful flavours to whet the appetite. One can figuratively traverse the globe when sampling dishes from India, Mauritius, China, Italy, Greece, and the Middle East. Extra sweets and treats have been sourced to add to the American flavour, and Plan B Dessertery are showing off their delicious creations. The crafts on show will catch the eye, and could certainly make good gifts for somebody looking to treat themselves.
Entertainment is a key part of this adventure market, and we have interesting artists displaying their musical talent on the first Sunday of every month. The hillside marquee has been dubbed “The Seaview Bar”, and it’s here that 2 Unique takes centre-stage. This talented duo covers a wide range of chilled music, including R&B, soft rock, reggae and jazz, and are fresh from wowing the crowd at the eLan Gold Cup. Our immersive Forest Bar is set under the eaves of the coastal forest, right on the edge of the beach, and features live music from the talented Milton, our resident acoustic guitarist. Walk a few metres down the path and you’ll hit the Beach Bar, which gives customers the feeling of enjoying cocktails at an island paradise.
Excellent beachside views and an elevated slope gives everyone a chance to see whale pods – literally tonnes of whales have been spotted off Blythedale’s shores recently. Have a whale of a time at BCAM’s Family Fun Fest 2019, the perfect outing for a relaxed day of family joy.
