Late New Year bash in Rosh Pinah

At a time when the Orange River valley is notorious for temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius, the miners who live near the river chose to celebrate New Year, helping them to forget the intense heat, if only for one day.
Rosh Pinah Zinc Mine in collaboration with Skorpion Zinc Mine are hosting a New Year’s bash in the town of Rosh Pinah to celebrate the start of 2013 this coming weekend at the Skorpion Zinc Sports Park.
Although a little late, it has become a tradition for the town to celebrate the New Year with a bash which includes live performances from various well-known Namibian artists such as award-winning Tequila, Sunny-Boy, Sikera Band, Vanity, Vivian and the Rockets.
According to the organisers, following the success of last year’s event the two sponsors decided to make it an annual event.
