Your Cape Town Weekend: things to do from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 June, 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.
Hello pay-day weekend! Yes, Mother City lovers, it’s nearly the magical 48 hours after you’ve been paid, and there are plenty of fun events to spend your hard-earned cash on.
Whether you’re admiring the sparkling lights in Gordon’s Bay, taking a road trip to Knysna for some fresh oysters, or listening to music at our very own Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, one thing is for sure: you’ll be entertained this weekend.
Join me at the following events from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 June, 2013:
The quaint seaside town of Gordon’s Bay is set to be brightened by light decorations and activities as it celebrates its third annual Winter Wonderland Carnival this weekend.
Join the festivities and marvel at the magical carnival characters, fire dancers, face painters and stilt walkers at the Fairy Fair; try the many food stalls; enjoy the Mr and Miss Wonderland competition; or shriek in mock horror at the popular Enchanted Ghost House.
Whatever you do, don’t miss this event! Visit www.winterwonderland.co.za for more information.
Grab your best friends for a tasty road trip to the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival.
This year’s event offers something for everyone, from running, cycling and adventure racing to wine and whiskey tastings, cooking competitions, food and wine pairings, live music and, of course, the oysters.
For more details, please call +27 (0)44 382 5510.
Moyo is bringing the musical heat to our gorgeous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden this chilly season – this Saturday local singer Mark Haze will be setting the stage alight with his phenomenal performance.
