Cape Town Carnival 2012 in Photos
Cape Town’s Fanwalk was awash with vibrant colour as the third annual Cape Town Carnival exploded on Saturday March 24, 2012.
More than 100 000 spectators descended onto the Fanwalk in Green Point to witness a spectacle that boasted no less than 11 pods for its Cape to Cairo theme.
From shimmering belly dancers to fearsome crocodiles and mighty African warriors and queens to sexy Brazilian performers, this year’s carnival was a smorgasbord of culture.
With costumes designed by the talented Cape Peninsula University of Technology students, performances by 2 000 voluntary performers and more, it was a celebration of diversity.
“We are so proud of the performers who delivered outstanding performances and the people of Cape Town did themselves proud with exemplary behaviour," said Rachel Jafta, Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Cape Town Carnival. "We say a huge thank you to the National Minister of Arts and Culture, Paul Mashatile, and our Mayor, Patricia de Lille, for their on-going support of the project.”
