Young and old flocked to the Jeffreys Bay Caravan Park over the weekend for the first JBay Makiti.

Despite the stormy weather forcing the organisers to cancel the Sunday afternoon programme, the event was a great success, said Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks.

“Compliments have been pouring in from the performers, stall-holders and visitors for the professional and caring manner with which the JBM was presented.

“I’d like to thank each and everyone who was involved in hosting the event for contributing to its success. It has put us firmly on course to become the Events Capital of South Africa,” he said.

Friday’s programme opened with a feast of upcoming artists, including Kouga Mayoral Talent winner Gabriel Plaatjies from Hankey, SMYC Music from Humansdorp and Anita Killian from Jeffreys Bay.

“They set the perfect tone for Fatman and Early B, who had the crowds on their feet, dancing the evening away,” Hendricks said.

The younger set was spoilt for choice on Saturday. Twelve cartoon favourites were on site to mingle with their young fans while the award-winning children’s act Buster and Bella encouraged their young audience to embrace and develop their talents.

“We were especially excited to have Jurassic Adventures and their mobile dinosaurs from Paradise Beach taking part in the festivities. The JBM confirmed once again how much our region has to offer locals and visitors alike,” he said.

Country Legends Tommy Dell, Lance James, Clive Bruce and Barbara Ray    brought back plenty of old memories with their performance that afternoon, followed by headline acts Brendan Peyper, Dewald Wasserfall, Tarryn Lamb and ADAM.

Despite Sunday morning’s cold and rain, hundreds of worshippers attended a special service by Dr Deon Els and the Imagine band.

“Sadly, the weather went from bad to worse, forcing the organisers to cancel Corlea Botha, Elvis Blue and Demi Lee Moore’s performances that were scheduled for the afternoon,” Hendricks said.

“Their fans were very disappointed, but we hope to bring them back to Jeffreys Bay, either for the next JBM or another event.”

The stage programme was complemented by a fun colour run, more than 100 stalls, two beer gardens, free wifi and free “tuk-tuk” transport for Makiti-goers between the festival terrain and parking areas.
