The Western Cape is gearing up for flower season, as spring approaches there are already many regions in full bloom.
Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo is ready to welcome visitors to it’s annual Bloom Festival on Saturday (August 31). A 30-minute drive from Oudtshoorn, this town is within reach for Capetonians wanting to get out and about for the day.
Traditionally this is the last day of the winter season and so it kicks off the celebration of all things flora.
As is the case every year, the beautiful spring blossoms symbolise the start of a new year for the fruit and wine industry in Calitzdorp.
This year’s festival is jam-packed with events for the whole family.
