The first ever City Walk Saturdays was launched by the Cape Town Partnership last weekend on the 18th of April.
The event featured Capoeira, tango and swing dance sessions, a tranquillity zone with meditation and yoga, jumping castles and kids storytelling time. Skateboarders whizzed through the space and curious squirrels watched as giant scrabble and pavement chalk unfolded. Onlookers were treated to special sound effects of the Sound Project and puppets entertained people along the route... just imagine the colourful, cultural circus...
The City Walk is a new storytelling route that encompasses the Company’s Gardens, St George’s Mall and the Fanwalk. It will be activated every third Saturday of the month – expect events, installations, experimental ideas and art. The next ones take place on 16 May and the one after on 20 June from 10am to 2pm.
Locals and visitors will be able to access the City Walk area’s cultural, architectural and historical landmarks through the route map, available at outlets along the way and through Cape Town Tourism.
