    A Different and Refreshingly Fun Game At Carnival City

    Excitement at Carnival City never seems to stop, with Comedy Sessions, Extravaganzas shows, bright lights and now a new type to fascinating show, or is it a game – call it what you will but Beer Pong is taking a tall to many vising guests, taking place in the Carnival Sports Bar on Fridays between 7pm and 9pm, this is a contests you cannot stomach to loose.

    With locals participation increasing weekly, this is a drinking sport that may be in the Olympics sooner, if Carnival City has its way with the game.

    The game requires R50 entry fee, steady hand, a loud mouth, faulty hearing and a liver of steel. Depending on your luck, you may leave a reigning champion with bragging rights for the night, and R1200 worth of gaming credits richer as prize money.

    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 bounce 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. Very Sophisticated, ha!

    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.

    Johannesburg, South Africa – On August 7 two monumental title clashes take place at the Carnival City Big Top Arena. Henry ‘Herculeez’ Fadipe defends his welterweight title for the first time against Adam ‘The Prodigy’ Speechly, and top contenders Boyd Allen and Barend ‘BB Gun’ Nienaber battle it out for the vacant featherweight belt.

    Henry Fadipe has scorched his way to the top of Africa’s welterweights with crushing defeats of all who’ve stood before him. He dispatched the legendary Martin ‘The Punisher’ van Staden in the first round, putting him out of action for ten months with a torn knee. He obliterated former champion Michiel Opperman with a double elbow clubbing to the jaw that knocked him out cold, and dropped champion Dino ‘The Lion’ Bagattin with a first round right hand to take the title.

    Come see Fadipe vs Speechly fighting for their titles at Carnival City Big Top.

    Old and new jazz greats in premier Jozi Jazz show Jazz legend Caiphus Semenya, sultry songbird Letta Mbulu and popular ‘Kasi Soul’ a capella group The Soil will top the bill at a one-night-only journey through Jozi Jazz on 5 July at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena.

    The hot tickets for what promises to be a magical journey through old and new will go fast as Caiphus Semenya makes a rare appearance with his wife Letta Mbulu on stage. Semenya is one of South Africa’s foremost musical directors and composers. Most recently heard on the soundtrack of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Semenya’s feature film credits includes an Oscar nomination for African music for the Steven Spielberg-directed Colour Purple.

    His compositions have been performed by overseas giants like Cannonball Adderley, Harry Belafonte, The Crusaders, Lou Rawls, and Nina Simone, amongst others. It is impossible to mention world jazz greats without mentioning this legend. The audience is in for an unusual musical treat as Letta Mbulu joins her husband on stage. Letta Mbulu or ‘Ma Letta Mbulu’ as she is affectionately known by her fans across the globe holds her own in the world of music.

    Having worked with the likes of Cannonball Adderley, David Axelrod and Harry Belafonte and most notably providing the Swahili chant in Michael Jackson's single, "Liberian Girl", Letta Mbulu can best be described as Africa’s mother of “cross-over” and “versatility” with her velvety voice heard in the soundtracks of Roots, The Colour Purple, and the 1973 film A Warm December. Don’t miss your chance to catch this Jazz Music live at Carnival City Big Top.
