This weekend, we went to the Harvest Festival in Limuru. Nairobi needs more events like this! It was the most fun, relaxing, social event we’ve attended in Nairobi in a long time!
Brackenhurst was a perfect location, with lovely grassy lawns and plenty of shady trees for sitting. There were lots of vendors lining the grounds, selling local products. We were particularly tempted by the honey, cheese, free range meats and eggs!
We spent most of the afternoon lounging on the grass by the stage, listening to great live music and watching the kids play. It was so easygoing and relaxed! We were kept joking that the only thing that would have made it better would have been some grown-up beverages… 🙂 The kids, on the other hand, were perfectly happy watching the Tae Kwon Do demonstration, and doing a few martial arts moves themselves…
It was so nice to just hang out, relax, and chat, letting the kids be kids. What a simple recipe: ice cream, face painting, live music, and – of course – pumpkins!
Thanks to the Woodland Star International School and Brackenhurst’s Muna Tree Cafe for organizing such a fun, chill family event! Here’s to more weekend family events like these in Nairobi!
