Your #lovecapetown weekend: Things to do from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 July, 2014
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.
Hey, #lovecapetown, guess what? It’s the weekend, baby!
Gear up for what is sure to be an epic 72 hours in our beloved Mother City… with illuminating festivals to artisan gourmet markets and delicious seafood fiestas on offer, there is just so much to see and do in and around our fabulous hometown.
Join me at these amazing events from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 July, 2014:
And you thought Gordon’s Bay was filled with hippie, laid-back families… think again, folks, because this weekend, these creative townsfolk are lighting the sky up with their popular Winter Wonderland Carnival and Parade.
Meander slowly down the LED lit streets, where snowflakes, light-encrusted yachts and snowmen, white lights in trees, in shops, restaurants, decorated homes and the magical Fairy Forest await you and your loved ones.
On Sunday, don’t miss the Parade with 300 performers, including, and lead by our esteemed Western Province Premier, Helen Zille.
Get all of the bright details at www.winterwonderland.co.za.
If it’s Saturday morning in Cape Town, you’re sure to find all of the hipster, coffee aficionados and organic foodies at the trendy Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock at the Neighbourgoods Market.
Get there early for an oysters and bubbly breakfast or whatever tickles your fancy before browsing through the close to 100 food and drink stalls. Then pick up a craft beer and sit back and enjoy the chilled market vibe.
