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:

Open Book Festival 2012

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.

To book tickets, contact +27 (0)861 915 8000.

Simon’s Town Spring Festival 2012

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.

Cape Town Marathon

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

Marvel at the amazing vistas of The Observatory, the Salt River Market, the V&A Waterfront and the Green Point Urban Park, whilst competing in this qualifier for the 2013 Comrades and Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon.
