Sunday 24 April 2011. An aerial view of the fun fare at the Rand ShowThe 2013 Rand Show is coming soon! This year’s show will be held from Thursday the 28th of March until Monday the 1st of April and it promises to be a fun-filled event for the whole family.

The 2013 Rand Show commits to bringing visitors fun, exciting and exclusive entertainment. And there certainly won’t be a shortage of fun things to do this year. This year visitors will have their chance to experience “Snow World”. Get yourselves ready to experience a magical winter wonderland complete with a 40 meter real-snow ski ramp and a solid-ice toboggan slide – all in a snow-covered Alpine village setting.

The Naked Scientist and his team will also be making an appearance at the 2013 Rand Show. This promises to be a “spectacular and explosive blow-your-socks-off show” experience. The Naked Scientist team will build vacuum-powered bazookas, create a tornado of flame, plunge objects into liquid nitrogen at minus 200 degrees and build hydrogen-fuelled rockets. Visitors can also attend daily interactive Q&A sessions with the Naked Scientist and his team.

The 2013 Rand Show will also feature exhibits by the SANDF (who will have an impressive line-up of vehicles, aircraft and military displays and exhibits).  There will also be arena displays by the JMPD and SAPS on the Saturday and the Sunday. Visitors are also encouraged to check out the Festival of Motoring part of the show. The Festival of Motoring will showcase over 150 cars of various varieties (including muscle cars, dragsters and off-road vehicles).

Besides all this the “Atomic Junkies” motoring extravaganza is also on at the 2013 Rand Show. Jim McFarlane and Mikey Skelton (two daredevil superstars) will present this motoring spectacular of extreme sports featuring drifting, freestyle, motocross and rally stunt sequences. Visitors will also have a chance to experience a “suicide ride” on the full drifting track. There’ll be more extreme stunts in the popular “Man vs Machine” extravaganza and the International Auto Sound Challenge Association of South Africa are also back with their ear-splitting car sound and performance challenges.  And let’s not forget about the 4 daily circus performances, reptile shows and SA Chefs Food Theatre and all the exhibits at the DO Food, DO Home, DO Health, Beauty & Wellness, and DO DIY pavillions at the show.  The 2013 Rand Show really has everything when it comes to things to do.
