Summer market entertains

2018-12-18 06:00

Following on from previous years, the Cape Town Summer Market will once again cater for visitors of all ages.

The market offers a range of fun activities that will keep young and old entertained.

The Cape Town Summer Market will take place from Wednesday 19 to Sunday 23 December in the Company’s Garden and will be open to the public from 18:00 to 23:00 daily.

Mayco member (North) Grant Twigg says: “The zones that cater for a broad range of interests and ages have proven to be very popular and will be a feature again this year. This format works well for a family-oriented event. This year sees many new additions including a revamped kids’ zone with carnival-style rides and fun area, more food trucks and even a ladies’ spa and wellness zone that will give families the opportunity to relax and enjoy quality time together.”

Last year a local talent competition, designed to make the market memorable and get the crowds involved, was added to the event.

This competition gives up-and-coming talent the platform to perform, and celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of Cape Town’s people and culture.

One of our home-grown talents will walk away with R30 000 worth of prizes.

Auditions are currently underway and those who qualify for the next round will compete live on stage at the summer market.

On the final night of the event’s Summer Song Contest, the top three contestants will compete for the prize and home-town glory­.

Last-minute shoppers looking for that special something will have the opportunity to shop along Government Avenue and find a gift from one of the stalls that will have a variety of products on offer.

“The summer market is a celebration of food, culture and fellowship, so whether you’re looking for arts, crafts, gifts, or just a relaxing time with loved ones, this is the place to be.

“If it’s entertainment you’re after then the Summer Song Contest is not to be missed as the best singers do battle for the top prize. Residents and visitors are urged to come down to the Company’s Garden and enjoy the 2018 Cape Town Summer Market,” adds Twigg.
