When I was little I read a lot. I finished the pre-teen and young adult sections before I even hit 12. One theme that came up often was “The Carnival”. Ferris wheels and game kiosk, roller coasters and cotton candy.
When we moved to Cape Town I discovered the Community Chest Carnival and loved all the rides on it, I imagined myself as one of the protagonists of the Sweetvalley High adventures, enjoying the time with my friends, keeping my eyes open for my “one-true-love” and generally having fun.
Fast forward almost 20 years later and most of those rides make me dizzy or I have gotten to the age where the charm looks more like rust. What does excite me, makes my heart skip a beat and my mind race with plans and ideas is the foodie carnival…Taste of Cape Town.
Instead of planning which ride I will choose, I am studying menus to plan how best to use my crowns. Instead of visions of cotton candy and slushies, my tastebuds are already at the starting block waiting for new and exciting flavours.
Wait, what? You love it too? How about you? never been!?!?!?! Well then I have some great news! I have 10 Double Tickets to give away. These little gems will get you into the gate of the and secure you a few hours of culinary adventure.
Just leave a comment about your favourite carnival memory.
