Fazielah’s top three festive weekend events in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Deck the halls with cheer and holly, Cape Town fanatics, because it’s officially the festive season in the Mother City! What that means, party animals, is that we are free to let our hair down and boogie like there’s no work on Monday…
Join me at the following events, from Friday 14 to Monday 17 December, 2012, and discover why the fun never stops in Cape Town:
Muscular men in shorts playing for top honours on a white, sandy beach ... yes, that does sound like my idea of heaven. And now you can enjoy it too with the start of the Hot Summer of Touch rugby series this Saturday.
Bigger and better than ever, this year’s highly anticipated tournament will see 450 teams putting their ball skills to the test on beaches all along the Southern Cape coastline, starting at Strand Beach.

Let your fairy godmother wave her magic wand and transform you into the prince or princess you deserve to be for the largest lifestyle party of the year, the Mother City Queer Project (MCQP) at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night – the theme is Fairy Tale Fantasy.

If you’re a shopaholic with a penchant for roses and the outdoors, you’ll love the Cape Town Summer Market in the Company’s Garden this weekend.
Perfect for some last-minute gift shopping, this 11-day market also presents a great opportunity to visit some of the Garden’s biggest attractions, including the South African National Museum, the Iziko Slave Lodge and the Planetarium.
