    MASVINGO – The country's first urban settlement is set to host the inaugural Lake October Festival where revellers will be taking part in different sporting activities and a musical show over two days as a way of promoting tourism from in and around Masvingo.
    The musical shows will be held at Caravan Park while other activities like fun run, game drive and fun shooting will be held at Lake Mutirikwi, Masvingo Golf Club and Great Zimbabwe Monuments on 19 and 20 October.
    "This year we have decided to change the name of the festival from Masvingo Music Festival to Lake October Festival as we are incorporating a lot of other activities besides music. Activities will be held at the Lake where fans will be interacting through music and cultural exchange at the Skato Bay at Lake Mutirikwi," said Garikai Garande who runs Caravan Park in Masvingo.
    Garande added that the festival is not entirely for entertainment but to boost domestic tourism and destination marketing. We are expecting people from different parts of the country to join in this festival. The event will bring Lake Mutirikwi to life as one of the country's main tourist destinations.
    The main attraction is a musical show by legend Oliver Mutukudzi who celebrated his 66th birthday last week on Saturday and dancehall sensation Wallace Chirumiko aka Winky D.
    The fun is set to commence with a charity golf day at Masvingo Golf Club on the 19th of October 2018 and on the same night Caravan Park will be set ablaze as Samanyanga and Winky D will take turns to quench their fans with a live performance of a life time.
    Winky D last performed at the same venue in April this year at the OneFusion concert for students where he left his fans crying for more after delivering a scintillating performance.
    The fun will be reignited the following day on October 20, 2018 as merrymakers will be partying on the shores of Lake Mutirikwi Zimparks- run Skato Bay.
    A number of thrilling activities are billed for the day including boat cruises, beach volleyball, braai and beach party, fireworks and fun shoot.
    Popular wheel-spinner and music producer Kwekwe-based Steven Wayne Sanders aka Dj Stavo and other top DJs will be fuelling the entertainment flame on the lake shores.
