Cape Town Carnival 2012

This year's Cape Town Carnival will be held tomorrow, 24 March 2012 on the Fan Walk from 5pm - one of the 2010 World Cup Soccer's most successful pre-match venues. Last year's carnival was held in Long Street and was a real blast, and this year's promises to be even bigger and better.

The theme for this year's parade is Cape to Cairo – a journey through Africa and its people, and it will feature 2 000 costumed performers in 11 themed floats, nine richly decorated giant floats and 11 academies with 150 community dancers.

It will be preceded by a concert at the Cape Town Stadium at 17:00. After the parade, a DJ will entertain the crowds near the Green Point traffic circle until midnight.
