The annual Kovsie Rag Community Service procession is underway in Bloemfontein and for most first year students participating it’s been a tiresome but exciting experience building the nine floats in the procession today. A first year student from the female hostel Madelief, Mafijone Mokoena, says she is tired but it was worth making a difference for charity. According to her most students had to get out of their comfort zones and new friends were made.
The procession is currently in Heidedal where food parcels are being distributed at the Twin City Centre to community members. Westline Aviation is also expected to give a flight show. All the young ones of Heidedal are enjoying the excitement.
A little girl told Bloemfontein Courant it t feels like they are in heaven. The floats are so colourful and pretty. "We are very excited".
Students will join the procession which will continue this evening at 18:00 from the Bloemfontein Campus to showcase the floats. It ends at Chevrolet Park with a music show. Float winners are expected to be announced prior to that. This year’s theme is all about video games and city icons.
