Every occasion is special

March 2009

Hello 2009! Hello World!
Allow us to introduce ourselves, we are Par Kan Entertainment!

Par Kan Entertainment is the new name in Production, Entertainment, Leisure, Sport, Special Occasions, Promotions, Tourism and just about anything in between (the Events and Hospitality industry), that is... Par Kan Entertainment! A new name, but old hands at the game!

Now that you know a bit about whom we are, and a bit about what we do, we'd like to remind you, a bit, of how quickly 2008 has come and gone. Oh, and a bit more, we're steadily approaching 2010 - at a bit of a hectic pace.

"Hey!" you might say "but we've just started 2009, and a bit!" Yeah right, but, "Have you planned your next corporate event or year-end function yet?" "Do you have the time, the team, the tried and tested tactics and the testimonials to plan and produce an event that will project your image?"

Well, don't even panic, simply give us a call, we might just be able to help you! Ok, even if you're not sure, check out some of our previous escapades in events or browse our site for more info.

Engen Driver of the Year

Engen Driver of the Year

October 2008

Thus far Par Kan has enjoyed a fairly busy year doing just about all kinds of events imaginable! We've just completed an exciting, fourth annual edition of the Engen Driver of the Year event in Port Elizabeth and even managed to get some waves at... Beach.

The event encompassed all aspects of our skills and challenged our ability to handle adverse weather conditions but the 2 days of adrenalin, competition and socialising ended with big rewards for Engen's top Driver awards at a Gala Evening at the Boardwalk. Trucks, Marquees, braais, Fire fighting, action video footage, high profile celebrity MCs and Musicians, branding, décor, all in a days work...

Imagine the sound of a solo saxophone floating where the sea meets the mountain in the rustic town of Hout Bay. The Tintswalo Restaurant is a cosy lodge at the foot of the mountain. We were chauffer driven from the top of the mountain, down 1km of winding road, to this amazing spot. Our sax player was Smooth Manny

Well known marketing agency, Octogon, often come up with interesting sports and developmental events. It is always great to be associated with these events, especially when you rub shoulders with the whos-who in sport. Our relationship with Octogon has taken us from the Santos Awards evening to the US Basketball coaches tour sponsored by Engen. We know Blackcurrant is certainly one of their favourites, but it was amazing to work with young DJ's and Dancers in Durban and Mitchells Plain.
