    Every Friday
    Event Details

    The excitement never stops at Carnival City with fun extravaganzas and games galore. The latest in this series of crazy action is game called Beer Pong, and it’s taken our guests by storm with participation increasing every week.
    To play the game one needs a R50 entry fee, steady hands and an indestructible liver. If luck is on your side, you may leave with R1 200 worth of gaming credits and most importantly – bragging rights for the night.
    The game is played on a Ping-Pong-like table, only slightly smaller, by teams of two. Ten cups, filled to a third of a cup with beer, are set like bowling pins near the table edges. As you try bouncing a Ping-Pong ball into the cups on the side opposite to yours, occasionally opponents jump and yell sounds to intimidate opponents, but if you make it, you get to make them drink the cup. The first team to sink all 10 cups wins!
    To book a turn against your buddies or a worthier opponent, visit the Carnival Sports Bar to register, registration is from 6pm, and the games run until 22h00.

    Hammond has been a chart-topping singer and songwriter for over 40 years. What sets him apart as a songwriter is that he does not just write hits—he writes classics. He is one of very few songwriters of our time whose songs not only have the mass appeal to make pop hits, but whose very same songs also have the timelessness and depth that over time turns them into standards. Few writers can successfully walk this line and deliver hits for the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and today.​

    Hammond found success at age 24 with the song "It Never Rains in Southern California", and went on to build an extraordinary career as an artist, songwriter and producer.

    In addition to his own classic singles such as "Down By the River", "I’m a Train", and "The Free Electric Band", Hammond co-wrote hit songs "The Air That I Breathe", "Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now", "Don’t Turn Around", and "To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before".
