LOOK: This is what the Cape Town Carnival 2017 looked like
If you were anywhere near the Green Point Fan Walk in Cape Town this weekend, you probably got to see some really interesting costumes and floats.
If you weren’t there, however, we’ve got some pics for you so you can have a look at the fabulous street party.
DJs Fresh and Euphonik entertained the crowds which included dancers from the world’s largest carnival, the Rio Carnival, and New York-based singer Oshri, who performed Crazy but Free, the 2017 Cape Town Carnival theme song.
This year’s theme was AMAZA! – Ocean Odyssey and celebrated our beautiful, precious oceans.
“With Cape Town in the middle of a serious drought, this year’s water-related theme comes at the perfect time to create awareness in a fun and colourful way,” said Cape Town Carnival creative director Brad Baard.
About 50 diverse community groups participated in this year’s outing. The Cape Town Carnival serves the broader Cape Town community by bringing together and celebrating the different identities of the Mother City’s citizens, as well as providing a platform for them to perform on an international level in a well-attended event.
“We’d like to make the Cape Town Carnival recognisable on an international level, as people from all over the world attend it,” said Rachel Jafta, chairperson of Media24 and of the Cape Town Carnival Trust.
