The Firearms festival starts at 08h00 and shooting ranges close at 17h30. Then the prizegiving ceremony and potjiekos dinner follows. It is highly recommended that visitors from outside the district stay over at one of the venues close to the shooting range. If not, you could either miss out on some of the festival, or travel on our roads after dark, with the real risk of accidentally running into a kudu, warthog or some other game.
