Your Cape Town weekend: top three things to do
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.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1… It’s the weekend in the Mother City Cape Town fanatics – and you know what that means, right? It’s party time!
I know it’s the middle of the month and you’re feeling the pinch, but with the range of events on offer this weekend, you don’t need to break the bank to have a good time.
So join me at the following events from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 March and discover why Cape Town is as easy on the pocket as she is on the eye:
Marvel at the gorgeous floats, dancers, fire-eaters and non-stop entertainment by some of the best local artists. The fun starts at the Cape Town Stadium forecourt at 17h00.

Let your hair down and go crazy with an insanely great line-up of the city’s top DJs at the inaugural Summer Life Crank Party at Long Street’s hot spot, Zula Sound Bar, this Friday.
Afrikaans hip hop artist, Hemel Besem will be the main attraction while Arsenic and Ruthy Pearl will be spinning the decks.
