Your Cape Town Weekend: Things to do from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 July, 2013
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.
Mother City lovers, it’s the freakin’ weekend in gorgeous Cape Town!
Don’t let the chilly weather deter you … there's still plenty to do in our entertaining hometown – from spectacular coastal light festivals to innovative conferences and thrilling garden concerts.
There's really is no need to stay indoors this weekend – join me at the following events from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 July, 2013 and discover why the fun never stops in Cape Town:
Nothing warms my heart quite like a community coming together to highlight the beauty of their suburb. The amazing residents of Gordon’s Bay have certainly done that with their illuminating Festival of Lights.
Get down there over the next few days and marvel at the village light displays, be scared out of your wits at the super-spooky ghost house or simply feel the love with a loved one at the Sparkling Lovers Bench.

TEDx Cape Town
Sadly tickets to this creative brain fest are sold out. If however, you still want in on the think tank that is the innovative TEDx Cape Town, you can host or join one of the hot viewing parties around the Mother City and stream the event.
The stunning Baxter Theatre in Rondebosch will once again play host to a red-hot line-up of speakers for the day. Be inspired by singer Shannon Hope, who followed her dream of making it big and Karen Dudley, the gourmet genius behind the Kitchen.
