The streets will be closed for final preparations at 18h00, giving Carnival-goers enough time to find the perfect viewing spot or make their way to one of the many restaurants along the Fan Walk before the magic begins at 19h00.

An explosion of fireworks at 19h00 marks the start of the electrifying parade. Over 2000 dazzling costumed performers and musicians will take to Cape Town’s Fan Walk, entertaining viewers with magical floats and vibrant dance routines. The parade will be followed by a thumping Redds after-party showcasing some of SA’s hottest musical talent.
