Time to brighten up theBreedeRiverwith colourful shapes and sizes!

Having fun, floating, swimming and jolling with your friends in the river – to the sounds of the bands on the MK river stage – will make you happy.  Mad happy.  One of the highlights of Up the Creek is the annual Anything that Floats Competition.  So get your game on and start building your very own fabulous floating spectacle.

How to enter:

Boats, lilos, inflatables, balloons – anything and everything is welcome.  Think feather boas, huge plastic ducks, floating baskets and disco  beach balls.  Win “Best Float” and you’ll get a bunch of great stuff including R3000 in cash, a hamper from our sponsor, two tickets to Up The Creek 2014 and two tickets to a Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert of your choice.   Other categories include “The Float with the Mostest” and “The Most Romantic Float.”  And no guys, no winking, wine or flowers for the judges. Bribery will score you no points. For more details visit our website: www.upthecreek.co.za   

Greenpop will join forces with Up the Creek in 2013 to create awareness and bring some cool Green elements to the festival. By introducing small changes to various areas of the event we will help to preserve this beautiful area at theBreedeRiverso it can be enjoyed for the years to come.  Greenpop will be working with green packaging and products, creating recycling stations across the site, setting up activations and incentives throughout the weekend and getting cool green partners on board to raise awareness. 

Greenpop started in September 2010 and has since planted over 17000 trees in over 200 beneficiary schools, crèches, orphanages, old-age homes, community centres as well as deforested areas. Creative tree-care programmes have been implemented and children, community members and volunteers are getting their hands dirty, learning a lot and loving it. 

Misha Teasdale, director of Greenpop says “Our objectives are to uplift communities, green urban and rural areas, create environmental awareness, combat climate change and make greening fun and popular so that a greener, more conscious movement is inspired.”
