July in Durban

The heat is on in Durban the next two weeks as our main outdoor events of the year take advantage of Durban's sizzling winter sun. This Saturday it's the Vodacom Durban July - South Africa's Premier horseracing event and fashion extravaganza. Of course we will be there along with our Guests coming for the dress-up and fashion - also South Africa's top fashion event of the year. The traditional 13th Race (YouTube video clip) is one in which the guys bare all down to their jocks and take a sprint down the main straight to the finish while the fashion fundis look on agog. And the after-parties are legendary. Durban's gay club The Lounge is hosting a 330 after-party which will see Durban rock till sunrise.And for those wanting a little less dress-up, and some more hot bodies, the boyz will be out on the beach for the Beach Festival and Mr Price Pro international surfing event that has made Durban famous over it's 30+ year history. So Durban's where the action is this July.
