What has the first day been like?
The festival has begun and already the atmosphere in the town is a buzz with excitement. The first day highlight was the Pug Race held at the Muizenberg Rendezvous. What an incredible thing to watch. Bundles of chaos trying to be controlled like that had people in stitches. Never before did I think an event like this would attract such a crowd. Not to mention all the Pug costumes. Hilarious.
We also had some music performances and an open evening at the Hive on Palmer road to introduce the festival and appreciate all the people who are involved in making this happen. Project Ripple kicked off their impromptu street performances with a dedication to water. Really something to watch. Monday saw the launch of the COMEDY FEST with an incredible open mic night and the comedic talent was insane!!! Wow, we have some funny people in the community.
What can we expect this coming week?
This week has got so much in store. The MUSIC FEST kicked off on Tuesday, the COMEDY FEST continues with fantastic performances. There are workshops and kids activities as part of the CHILDRENS FEST that are great ways to keep kids entertained though the school holidays.
The ART FEST will see artists displaying and performing in and around Muizenberg. The FILM FEST is about showcasing local film makers talents. And the COMMUNITY FEST is a series of events run by community members that connect people, allowing them to experience the town as a local.
We also have a WORD FEST which sees a host of speakers giving talks on very interesting topics as well as the ECO FEST designed to showcase some of the conscious living programs in and around the town.
