This Saturday (16th March) sees the Cape Town Carnival come to the Greenpoint fan walk.
Once the province of a single, old-fashioned, Cape Town culture, the carnival has become far broader in recent years. The 2010 World Cup seems to have been the catalyst, and now costumes resemble those from other international carnivals.
If you go – watch your pockets, hold on to your valuables.
The procession will start at 7 pm, near the Victoria Junction Hotel. It will go down Main Road and end at the Stadium forecourt, where there will be live music until midnight. More information here.
