Things to do over the Easter weekend in Gauteng

So, you have either missed the “Easter long weekend” bus or have just decided to spend the time at home. Don’t stress there are tons of fun activities you can do in Gauteng this weekend.

Easter on the Piazza

Entertain the kids at Montecasino with Easter on the Piazza. It runs from Friday, 19 April 2019 to Monday, 22 April 2019 from 10h00 – 18h00.

They will have giant inflatables, interactive games, a kiddie’s creative corner and dedicated Hopper Squad to entertain the little ones. All this is FREE! Plus, you can enjoy a drink and great meal from one of the restaurants in the square. I suggest trying out either Malt Barrel & Fire or PortulGalo.

The Rand Show

The Rand Show is the perfect place to take your children this Easter weekend for loads of fun. The Kids Expo, Baby Zone, Toy world, Animal Kingdom and the Festival Stage for Kids are sure to keep your young ones entertained.

Deep Roots Easter Market

Deep Roots Night Market is one of my favourite markets to visit in Pretoria. Not only is the food great but so is the atmosphere and the vibe.

This Friday they are adding two more DJ’s to the mix. So make sure you pack a blanket and invite the mates for beautiful afternoon out.

They are starting the festivities quite a bit earlier this time, so that we can enjoy the beautiful Pretoria sunset together!
