Fazielah’s top three free weekend events
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.
Just because it’s pay day weekend, doesn’t mean you have cash to flaunt, right?
No need to worry, I’ve got you covered, guys. From live music to spectacular parades and free food tastings, you can have a fabulous weekend in the Mother City for mahala (free):
My most treasured summer memories are those spent loving the free live bands performing at the V&A Waterfront’s gorgeous Amphitheatre.
This weekend, South African songstresses Vicky Sampson and Melanie Scholtz, accompanied by the Love Apples will entertain you. Take the little ones along and let them loose on the new playground.
