DStv Mitchells Plain Festival

The Mitchells Plain Festival is a community based initiative, sponsored by DStv, held every December at the Westridge Community Gardens.

DStv uses Show Works to provide various Kids Entertainment at the Festival. Over the past few years we have provided face painting, craft activities, magicians, balloon sculptors, clowns, as well as visits from favourite DSTV characters such as The Fimbles (CBeebies), Tjiff, Tjaff and Elephant (Koowe) and Boo (KidsCo). The kids entertainment area is always packed with excited kids who line up from morning till night to take part in the fun.

We have also extended our offering for the festival and produced a fantastic programme of interactive channel-themed Workshops, which is a huge hit with the kids! Our little toddlers ‘Move To Music with Koowee’ – a fun sing-a-long workshop with dance and movement. Our PowerPuff Girls Grooming and Make Up corner shows young girls how to look and feel their best! The kids get to strut their stuff in a Judy Jetson’s Fashions of the Future Fashion Show and our intrepid Gym Instructor had the kids Getting Fit and Active in our Exercise workshop – along with a visit from everyone’s favourite orangutan, Boo!

Our High School Musical Dance workshop is one of the most enjoyed workshops, and the Dexter’s Laboratory Science and Magic Show enthralls the boys! An exhausting but fun weekend is always had by all!
