Hundreds of residents of different ages gathered to enjoy the various activities offered by the annual Hentiesfees which took place this weekend at the coastal town.

The festival was hosted over two days, from Friday until Saturday. On Saturday a 10 km fun run as well as a 30 km and 55 km cycling event took place. Along with the famous touch rugby was a parade from Woermann Brock in town.

For the children the Hentiesfees provided plenty of fun to be had. A number of jumping castles were on hand to keep the young ones entertained for hours.

There was also a snake demonstration for the children which displayed many non-venomous snakes to them. Puppet shows were also held and kept the kids fully enthralled with well thought out educational themes.

There were plenty of stalls which offered various products and services ranging from food and drink to home-made products.

In terms of music, the Hentiesfees had many South African and Namibian artists who sung to an anticipating crowd.

The likes of Charlize Berg, Robbie Wessels, Fatman, Franja du Plessis, Dirk van der Westhuizen and Joe Foster blew the crowd away with their respective performances.

There were also performances by Ruan Josh, Vaughn Ahrens, Danie Prinsloo, Claudine Nelson, George Longane, Werner van Zyl, Shydogs, Haak en Steek, Niekie Roberts and Jacques Vermaak.

The angling competition which was hosted by the Henties Bay Angling Club was part of the Hentiesfees festivities this past weekend.

The competition had various categories which included the heaviest edible fish category. In that category, Patrick Muir won by catching a steenbras which had a weight of 11.38 kg, walking away with N$10 000 in prize money. Allen Langestrassen caught the second largest, which was a kabeljou of 3.79 kg. He claimed N$6 000 as prize money for his efforts.

In the competition’s cob category, Nicky Niewoudt walked away with first place as well as N$4 000 to his name after catching a 2.72 kg cob. He was followed by Annelien Langestrassen in second place who managed to catch a cob which weighed 2.565 kg. Langestrassen took home N$2 000 for her runner-up finish.
