This past weekend saw the Port Of Cape Town turn into a hub of festivities, an intimate festival where families could enjoy time together at the picnic area. The weekend weather played along nicely to allow for a perfect platform for festival goers to enjoy the variety of activities planned by the organisers.
Not only was the festival about enjoying a day out with the family but it was also an opportunity for young leaders of tomorrow to gain more knowledge about this industry and make informative decisions.
The career exhibition tent was filled with information from The City Of Cape Town, SA Navy, Transnet and many more… I even learnt something new about these bouys.
Bouys: These are floats that warn of hazards such as rocks or shallow ground, to help ships manoeuvre through unfamiliar harbours. Portside bouys are red, while starboard side bouys are green.
For many though the main attraction was to see the live acts from Beatenberg, Jimmy Nevis, Casper Nyovest and FreshlyGround to name but a few. These are some of SA biggest talents and even got our Mayor Patricia de Lille and Shaleen Surtie Richards jiving, yip yip ons sien vir julle and we love it.
An educative festival with lots of entertainment to keep everyone happy.
We don’t laugh because we’re happy – we’re happy because we laugh. – William James
