The carnival workshop is usually a hive of creativity and inspired this year’s theme, Vuka Ukhanye: Arise and Shine! It will be brought to life through floats, costumes and puppetry on March 16.
Last year, about 54000 people watched the show and organisers look forward to even more attending this year. There will be more than 2200 performers in 54 performing groups participating.
The carnival will enter its 10th year and it has proven to be an economic boon for the City. The direct contribution to the City’s GDP from last year’s event was R58.5 million.
The costume department has excelled, with incredible and inventive costumes for each participant.
