All roads will lead to the fan walk this Saturday as Capetonians ready themselves for the eighth annual Cape Town Carnival on Saturday.

More than 2000 costumed performers will strut their stuff amid 17 floats at this year’s carnival under the theme of “Amaza – Ocean odyssey”.

The fan walk in Green Point is expected to come alive with a mix of dancing, singing and revelry for the event on Saturday.

Carnival-goers can enjoy the excitement and a variety of food, crafts and special children’s activities from 15:00.
The parade itself will begin at 19:00.

The team members of People’s Post have been hard at work to get our own newsy designs ready for the parade. Look out for the team dressed in ocean-inspired outfits made from newspaper.

Also joining us will be the winner of our Cape Town Carnival costume design competition: Abigail Coetzee (12) in her “Sea-Rex”.

Blend in at the carnival by having your face painted or buying one of our limited edition Cape Town Carnival t-shirts at the People’s Post carnival stall along the route.

Come support our stall and stand a chance to win! Prizes include tours on the City Sightseeing red buses, harbour boat cruises, entrance to the Two Oceans Aquarium and a one-night stay for two at the Tsogo Sun hotel.
