There are some fabulous, free events happening in Cape Town this weekend, so take your pick and make the most of the summer weather…
OPEN STREETS BREE STREET
Once again Open Streets returns to Bree Street on Sunday 17 January. Streets will be closed off to motorised transport to create a platform for community building and recreational activity. Besides being able to walk, cycle and skate freely, community members arrange a wide range of activities from Salsa dancing and Swing lessons, to gymnastics, street soccer, open mic sessions and much much more.
What to bring? Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, water, a bike, skateboard, your family and all your friends!
DE WAAL PARK CONCERTS
This popular park in the heart of the city is a fabulous setting for an afternoon concert. The awesome award-winning afro-fusion group, Freshlyground, will be performing this coming Sunday along with Idols runner-up Mark Haze and ska-reggae band The Rudimentals. Take your blankets and picnic hampers.

For some cultural hop down to the Sea Point Pavilion Forecourt and take part in some Social Argentine tango dancing on the Sea Point promenade. Dj Sylvia Westcott will play your favourite tunes to keep you dancing. This Sunday from 5:45 – 7:45pm.
