On Saturday, 2 February 2019, Mayor van Deventer gave her keynote address at the 2019 Blessing of the Harvest Parade in Stellenbosch. The event is now in its seventh year and continues to go from strength to strength. It is fast becoming a highlight on our town calendar and next year promises to be even bigger and better!
Residents and visitors came out in their numbers to support the farm workers and their families who took part in this year’s event. The parade consisted of farm workers and their families, colourful floats, majorettes, bands and groups who work closely with the agricultural sector. Congratulations to the team from Kaapzicht who won the Spirit Award and the team from Delheim who walked away with the award for the Best Float.
