Residences putting final touches to their floats for Rag procession on 1 February

The Bloemfontein Campus has been a hive of activity, with students building floats ahead of the annual Rag procession on Saturday 1 February 2014. A palpable excitement hangs in the air at the Kovsie Ragfarm, where first-year and senior students are gathering to put the final touches to their residences’ floats. Residences’ hard work will culminate in a parade through the streets of Bloemfontein.

It is to be seen which residences’ floats fit the theme ‘Movies’ best to be crowned winners. Like 2013's winners – Karee, Soetdoring and Imperium – the winning residences will have a coveted front-row spot along the procession route.

Floats will depart at 09:00 for the first procession of the day, which end at Twin City Mall in Heidedal.

The float winners will be announced at 17:00, whereafter the main procession of the day will depart from the Tempe robot in Nelson Mandela Drive at 18:00.
