Your #lovecapetown weekend: What’s on from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 August, 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.
Let’s hear it for the weekend, Mother City lovers!
Three days of epic Capetonian awesomeness are about to hit you so hard, it ain’t funny. From grandiose battleships to succulent veggie markets and delicious craft beer tastings, there is just so much to see and do in our thrilling hometown.
Dump those onesies, suit up in your sexiest outfits and join me at the following legendary events in Cape Town from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 August, 2014:
HMS Iron Duke at Table Bay Harbour
To paraphrase rapper Sir Mixalot: “I like big ships and I cannot lie” …
