Cherry Festival

For many years Ficksburg has hosted a festival for the cherry harvest each year in the second week of November. Years ago it was an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the reaping with parades and cherry pip spitting competitions. However, it has somewhat lost this charm. Nevertheless it is the one time in a year when Ficksburg (a little town on the border of Lesotho) is booming with activity. And of course, the cherries are fantastic!
