Much to the excitement of fun lovers, the Musina Annual Show recorded a full capacity attendance at Musina Showground. Mayor Mihloti Muhlope said there is no doubt that the Musina Annual Show is one of the prime exciting events in the calendar of the Limpopo Province and beyond. “We have been organizing the annual show for more than 20 years and we make sure that each year, there is an improvement. The turn up was overwhelming and we are very excited about it.” She said.

Muhlope said the success of the Musina Annual Show is a step forward towards the achievement of the city status for Musina.  “Government has declared Musina as a provincial growth point. Preparations to implement the Special Economic Zone are also at an advanced stage. Initiatives like the Musina Annual Show help us to market our municipality, thereby paving a way for us to realize the above visions.”

She added that the Musina Annual Show also yield positive spinoffs to local entrepreneurs as there were lots of trade activities in the three days of the show. “Our tourism industry also benefited a lot as we had thousands of visitors who came to our municipality. We received positive reports that all the local hotels and guest houses were full, thereby giving a boost to our businesspeople. More importantly, our artists also get exposure and it becomes easier for them to acclaim international status.”

She said the timing of the annual show was right as it came during women’s month. “We saw a lot of women participating in various activities during the three days of the show. This is the best thing we can do to honour women in our municipality.”

Apart from exhibitions, fun lovers enjoyed music festivals, wrestling, traditional dancers, musangwe, demonstrations by the South African National Defence Force, merry-go-rounds, theatre, choral music and poetry.
