There will be dancing, pyrotechnics, enormous colourful floats, giant puppets, live music, and hot firemen and women. Here’s everything you need to know about this not-to-be-missed Cape Town event.
This year’s theme is “Mother City, Mother Nature” and will celebrate the duality of Cape Town as a city that acts both as a melting pot of cultures and home to natural wonders like the Cape Floral Kingdom.
