Cape Town Carnival 2013: A dazzling journey of the imagination
The 4th annual Cape Town Carnival ignites the Mother City on Saturday 16 March 2013 at the Fan Walk, Somerset Road, Green Point.
This is one of those special days in the Mother City that excites and unites the community with a spectacular celebration showcasing art, music and dance. The Stadium Forecourt hosts band performances and stalls in the afternoon and then the Carnival parade kicks off at 19:00, culminating in a festive after party.
The Cape Town Carnival, although still in its relative infancy on the Cape Town events calendar, has taken the City by storm and over the past 3 years wowed South Africans and tourists with colourful costumes, fun, vibrancy, dance, floats and music that made it special and memorable.
“We are very pleased and proud of what we have managed to achieve with Carnival in the last 3 years. With the addition of many live music troupes we will increase the vibe and bring the heartbeat of the nation in 2013? says Jay Douwes, CEO of the Cape Town Carnival.
The Cape Town Carnival is the result of many months of hard work by event production teams, costume designers, producers, float builders, choreographers and thousand of community members and volunteers that all aims to bring the theme to life in a dazzling journey of the imagination.
The objectives of the Cape Town Carnival are multi-faceted: Celebrating diversity, promoting social harmonisation, economic development and tourism and facilitating training and development, particularly among the youth and broader community of Cape Town.
