Every year there is staged a Ricksha Parade with prizes for the best head-dress. First section covers assembly, and examples of headgear. Following is the parade through the streets.
It is organised by the Durban Publicity Association and something like 60 rickshas compete for the prize and honour. The headgear is designed and built by the boys themselves, and in some cases represent some rather ingenious ideas. Headgear is not the only feature but the magnificent beadwork of their bodywear.
