Cape Town Open Streets

I absolutely love the vibrancy of the Cape Town city center  but hate the traffic that comes along with it. Cue the ingenious idea of Open Streets Cape Town. During this street festival, sections of a popular street are cordoned off and pedestrians can roam freely without being worried about dodging cars. There’s entertainment and a variety of food on offer to suit all tastes and ages too. It’s a great way of getting to know the city while having a fun time.
