Local Nantes festival is lekker!
Yesterday – January 25 2009 – I attended a festival on the “Nantes” (“Nantes” is the name locals use for a park in the Bridgetown area of Cape Town). It’s an annual festival, at which various artists perform and entertain the crowd for the day.
The local community came from far and wide with their families leaving their differences aside to enjoy the day together. When speaking to the locals, they told me that this event brings their community closer and they get to enjoy it with others, some of whom they have never seen or spoken to before.
Even the local metro police and law enforcement officials turned out to help make this event a success.
This is once again proof why I’m Living and Loving Cape Town!
