More than 70 000 excited spectators flocked to #lovecapetown’s Fanwalk in Green Point on Saturday 15 March, 2014 for the fifth annual Cape Town Carnival and what festive gees (spirit) they had!

This year’s event was themed “Imagine” and boy, did the float designers allow their imaginations to run free… from the breath-taking Tsogo Sun “African Dream Doll” to Airports Company of South Africa (ACSA) stunning miniature plane and its accompanying flamenco dancers and the astonishing real-looking giant Protea flower which opened and closed mechanically, the procession was truly a feast for the eyes.

In a city currently holding the World Design Capital 2014 designation, we showed that not only are we creative and fantastic at hosting mega events, we are great at using design to transform the lives, and entertainment value, of our residents.

In addition to the spectacular floats, delicious food trucks and thrilling entertainment from the likes of DJ Fresh, popular local band Mi Casa,  the Limited Edition drummers, the 20SK8 Krew ‏skateboarders and more ensured that the Mother City’s Carnival-loving residents and visitors had a fantastic time.

Here are few images of this popular annual City of Cape Town supported event:
