Wagging tails and slobbery kisses will be the order of the day on Saturday when the Stellenbosch Slow Market celebrates man’s best friend.
People are invited to bring their small to medium sized dogs with and make their canine family members the stars of the day in a parade, as well as show them off in competitions in order to be crowned as the most beautiful dog, the most energetic, and one with the most character.
South Africa’s most famous celebrity dog, Bob (of popular SABC3 breakfast show Expresso) will add some star quality when he attends as a VIP on the day.
Expresso will also be filming an insert of the celebrations, so the canine winners will be able to add “TV star” as one of their achieved doggie bucket list items.
Hill’s Pet Nutrition, a leading pet food manufacturer, will be sponsoring a variety of prizes on the day ranging from bags of food, treats and other goodies.
The parade will be taking place at 11h00 on the lawns of the Oude Libertas Estate in Stellenbosch where the Slow Market is located (the market is open from 09h00 to 14h00).
All this, plus the usual culinary delights and surprises at the market will be on offer. There is no entry fee for the Stellenbosch Slow Market and parking is freely available.
