The Knysna Splash is the Garden Route’s very own family orientated festival and will take place from the 19th to the 21st of December 2014. As the name may imply the four main activities will take place in and around the Knysna lagoon. Read on for a breakdown of the exciting activities!
Splash Mud Run 19th December 2014
Taking place at Loerie and Cathy parks off George Rex Drive, participants need to register at 9.00am and be ready to get a little muddy! This is a great way to let your hair down and have some not so clean fun. At the end of the race firemen will be waiting to hose you down! Just remember to bring a towel.
Splash Knysna Lagoon Mile 20th December 2014
The Knysna Mile is divided into two categories, the mile swim (1600m) and the junior swim (450m). Starting at 14.30pm from the Knysna Yacht Club, this race is a lot of fun for young and old alike. Be sure to register from about 10.30.
Splash Quack Attack 20th December 2014
We can’t think of a better sight than watching up to 1000 ducks race against each other as their owners stand and cheer the little duckies on! The race will start at 16.00pm at the Knysna Waterfront with some great prizes up for grabs. Ducks are all numbered and can be purchased for R20 from the Knysna Mall and the Knysna Waterfront from the 13th of December.
Splash Dragon Boat Race 21st December 2014
Get a team together and head out for an exciting race using traditional Chinese style dragon boats. Each boat will have a crew of 10 and be decorated with flair. There are two categories for the race, one for those wanting to have a relaxed and fun race, and the other for those who are ready for a little competition! Races will start on Thesen Island, next to Sirocco, at 10.00am for the first heat and continue mid afternoon.
