The Cape Town Carnival
Each year tens of thousands of spectators converge on Green Point’s famous Fan Walk to savour an eye-popping and mind-blowing parade of costumed performers and musicians, accompanying giant and spectacular moving floats.
The Cape Town Carnival is operated by a non-profit trust and its purpose is, not only to stage a world-class event, but to create jobs and stimulate our local economy. http://capetowncarnival.com/
