Your #lovecapetown weekend: What’s On from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 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, are you ready for your EPIC weekend in and around the gorgeous Mother City?
Get your game face on and let’s rock the next 72 hours like Monday will never arrive with these legendary winter events:
Master the art of slurping salty goods at the must-attend seafood event of the year, the Pick ‘n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival this weekend.
Yes, the six hour drive to get there feels like forever, but trust me on this, once you see the phenomenal views of the Heads and you’ve tucked into all of the delicious entertainment including fun fairs, running trails, live music acts and more, you are going to be super glad you made the journey.

So, Mother Nature rained all over their parade last week which is why those ingenious Gordon’s Bay folk have moved their illuminating Winter Wonderland Carnival and Parade to this weekend.
It’s set to be all kinds of awesome with more than 50 vehicles, including a fire truck and 300 performers (with everything from circus performers to stilt walkers and ghosts!) geared up to entertain you.

Head to the Winelands:
If, like me, you’re a battle junkie, or you’re just a gourmet foodie and wine lover, you’re going to love the Franschhoek Bastille Festival, now celebrating its 21st anniversary.
Think street parades featuring performers dressed up in vintage battle costumes; trails runs with French maids attending to your needs at the finish line and market stalls laden with all of the delectable goodies you can imagine.
