Rand Show is one of the annual events in Johannesburg, South Africa which goes on for at least 2 weekends and weekdays in between which means around 9 days in total. The tickets are fully booked online before the start of the show as the show offers the best of South Africa under the multiple roofs of Johannesburg Expo Centre in Nasrec.
The place is too big to be walked in a single day and that's why people take a weekend ticket or start as early as possible when the gates open on weekends. The place is full and there are lines everywhere as it offers plenty of activities, food stalls, African arts and crafts, and various other popup shops from around the world. The parking is huge and you have to park your car right in front of the entrance gates which is showcased on your tickets else you won't be able to find your vehicle after the closing time of the show.
Also, Rand show offers various kinds of Air Shows as per the schedule performed by various divisions of the Military and Air Force of South Africa. This is a pleasant sight where you will see various military tanks, vehicles, aircraft where you can enter and take photos too. The forces will also explain the functionality of each and every vehicle in detail.
The airshow is one of the best highlights of this big festival and can be watched from the open-air auditorium easily and also from any place you are standing around the same. I could take some shots using Canon 77D - 18-125mm USM lens at the event in 2019. I hope you will like them as I totally loved the aircraft with the wings design and South African flag on the tails.
The show took me to my memories of my class XI and XII when I used to study in Kendriya Vidyalaya in Air Force Station, Sirsa and we used to see MIGs flying and sometimes performing for us especially once a year or so.
