A message of support from Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks:

The Kouga Council is proud to be associated with the first JBay Makiti. 
Set to be presented at the Jeffreys Bay Caravan Park from 20 to 22 September, the JBM will bring locals and visitors together for three days of family fun. 
It is the first of several festivals that Kouga Municipality will be rolling out in conjunction with local businesses, schools and community organisations as we strive to become the 'Events Capital of South Africa' . 
By ensuring that something big happens in Kouga every month, we aim to increase visitor numbers throughout the year so as to build a vibrant economy and strong communities. 
We are undoubtedly blessed to stay in a place as beautiful and diverse as Kouga. It is an honour to share this treasure with South Africa and the world. 
Other upcoming new events include a beer fest in October and a biker rally in November. Visitors can further look forward to the first-ever laser show to open the festive season in December and a traditional fireworks show to ring in the new year. 
On behalf of the Council, I would like to thank Jeffreysbaai Feeste, the non-profit organisation who availed their time, energy and expertise to make the JBM a reality. 
This is but one of many partnerships the Council has forged over the past three years and it has been inspiring to see the positive difference working together can make.
I would like to make use of this opportunity to thank the many organisations and unsung heroes who have contributed to making Kouga a better place to live, work and play for all its people. 
May this year's J'Bay Makiti ring in a renewed period of prosperity as we strive to build one Kouga for all.
