Following the announcement that South Africa will once again take part in Global Smurfs Day, details of the local celebrations can now be revealed.

4 separate events will take place in 3 provinces at the same time on Saturday 22 June as South Africans join together to spread a little love and goodwill … Smurf-style!

4 special venues have been chosen and will be painted Smurf-blue on Global Smurfs Day, thanks to the generous participation of Jack’s Paint and Hardware in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

The 2 chosen venues in Johannesburg are Oliver’s House in Zenzele and Abraham Kriel Langlaagte Campus in Observatory. Child Welfare in Phoenix has been chosen as the Durban venue and Percy Bartley House in Woodstock is where the Smurfestivities will take place in Cape Town.

Celebrities, the media and key partners of Sony Pictures Releasing International(SPRI) will all be joining in the fun and celebrations and lending a hand, or a cheer, to those painting each venue.

“A key message of Smurfs 2 and Global Smurfs Day is to spread love and goodwill. Without the generosity of our promotional partners, this day would not be possible. Thanks must go out to Jack’s Paint and Hardware, Bokomo, Idea Fruits, Checkers, Prima Toys, Sea Harvest, Tropika, UbiSoft, Sony Mobile,  Sony Home Entertainment, Ackermans, Popz Popcorn, Sony Music, Build-A- Bear Workshop and McDonalds for all their support and involvement in making what we certainly hope will be a special day for each of our chosen charities,” say Bashan Govindarajulu, marketing manager, SPRI, South Africa.
