Your Weekly Joburg Guide 
This weekend is going to be a big one! Friday is the Eid al-Fitr celebrations for our Muslim community. Saturday is not only Youth Day but also the second SA vs England rugby test, and let's not forget about Sunday - Father's Day! Oh, and how could we forget, 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia‚ĄĘ kicks off tomorrow (first up, Saudi Arabia VS Russia)! Talk about a jam-packed weekend. Are you ready?¬†
With a dash of magic and a sprinkle of pixie dust, the Ticketpro Dome will be transformed into a Disney wonderland  from 22 June - 1 July! Disney on Ice presents Dream Big is a MUST this winter (and school holidays), so get your tickets now.

Another must this season is the Vaal River Wine Expo, taking place on 23 June at both Stonehaven on Vaal AND Riverside Sun Hotel. Not only will you get a sneak peek of the wines that'll be featured during the ever-popular Vaal River Meander Wine Route (24 June - 5 August), but you'll also get to sample said wines, enjoy a 30 min Vaal River cruise and indulge in delectable food. Best of all, we have tickets up for grabs! 

Do you know what else makes us feel warm and fuzzy during this season? Doing a good deed for a great cause! Barnyard Theatre is giving back to the community by giving away a fundraising event to a deserving cause at each of their six venues. This is your chance to make a difference, click here to enter now! 

Soccer fans, the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia kicks off tomorrow and we're beyond excited! So excited in fact, that we went in search of the best places to watch the beautiful game in the city along with fellow football fanatics, ice-cold draughts of beer and a lively atmosphere. Cheers to that and may the best team win!

  And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:

Spend your Friday night watching the Morocco VS Iran and Portugal VS Spain games live on the big screen at 1Fox. In between all the soccer action, you can stretch your legs by taking a stroll through the market and grabbing a bite to eat and an ice-cold beer. 
If you happen to be in Pretoria on Youth Day (Saturday), don't miss out on the Capital Craft Beer Festival. You can expect a day filled with awesome live music, lots of craft beer and, of course, a screening of the second South Africa VS England rugby test. 

Winter is here and what better way to embrace it than doing a little shopping, listening to good music, indulging in mouthwatering treats and sipping on jam jar cocktails at the first-ever Winter Night Market at Sylvia's Market this Saturday? 
In celebration of International Yoga Day on 21 June, Yoga Works will be hosting a massive yogi session at the Wanderers Stadium - a great way to start your Saturday morning. 
Sunday is all about Dad, so why not treat him to a fun day out at the first-ever 702 Day of the Dads at Waterfall City? It's going to be a big celebration complete with delicious artisanal food, lots of live entertainment, fun activities for the whole family and a dedicated Dad Zone!

And that's it for this week! See you soon.
