Drive into Smithfield from Bloemfontein and you'll know something colourful is going on.
On the island at the entrance to town you'll find a large poster, painted by local artists and art students, reminding everyone that the Platteland Preview festival starts on Friday 26 June and lasts all weekend.
The Red Barn, behind the island, is the home of the festival, and it welcomes festival-goers with bright red bunting, while two large wire windmills reflect the Preview's logo.
And if you walk or drive through town you will notice how random trees are suddenly swaddled with orange scarves, like the ones on sale to fest-goers this weekend.
Smithfield is almost ready for our festival guests!
