Carnival magic

Thousands of spectators were treated to a dazzling music, dance and costume parade as the Cape Town Carnival wound its way along the Green Point Fan Walk on Saturday. Themed “Amaza! – Ocean Odyssey”, the parade started at 7pm and was followed by a street party, with DJs Fresh and Euphonik entertaining the crowds. The more than 50 000 people who joined in the festivities this year included dancers from the world’s largest carnival, the Rio Carnival, and New York-based singer Oshri, who performed Crazy but Free, the 2017 Cape Town Carnival theme song.
