The district produces maize in large quantities, and the town is a busy shipment point with a grain elevator and a mill. Annually the town plays host to one of the largest agricultural festivals in the world, NAMPO as well as the annual Food & Witblits Festival.
Boating, fishing, sailing and swimming are popular on the Vals River that meanders south of town.
Worth a visit are a few historical buildings such as a small three-roomed sandstone building in President Street that originally served as the town's police station.
