Facebook Feedback Friday: The best annual event in Cape Town
Stuart Buchanan is a journalist, blogger, and online writer for Flow Communications.
He grew up in Durban and has lived in various parts of South Africa and the UK, before finally settling on Cape Town. He often wonders why anyone would want to live anywhere else.
Yesterday evening we asked people who like the I ♥ Cape Town Facebook page: "What is the best annual event in Cape Town?"
With so many to choose from, the comments were bound to be interesting! We have included a selection of responses below, in an attempt to showcase the mix of sport, music, trade and entertainment events that Cape Town regularly plays host to:
