Fazielah’s top three weekend picks in Cape Town for September 21 to 24, 2012
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.
It's Heritage Day weekend, lovely people, and whether you’re commemorating the day in true South African-style with a lekker braai, or taking part in cultural activities, one thing is for sure, Cape Town is ready to celebrate with you!
Join me at the following events from September 21 to 24, and show your #LoveCapeTown spirit:
As a self-confessed bibliophile, I just cannot resist a good book festival or two. The return of the über successful Open Book Festival to the Fringe this weekend naturally has me in utter literary thrall!
Prepare yourself for a jam-packed programme of readings, discussion panels, signings and more at The Fugard Theatre, Book Lounge and Central Library with award-winning international and local authors.

Free family fun at the seaside in Simon’s Town? Yes, please sign me up for that!
Pack your picnic baskets, gather the kids into the car and head out to the Simon’s Town Spring Festival where fabulous activities such as browsing through the market, making sandcastles with the little ones and exploring the inside of the Navy dockyard awaits you.

Experience the Mother City’s beauty and historic sights on the Cape Town Marathon’s picturesque route this Heritage Day.
