The great thing about living in the Mother City is that you are never short of fun activities to do. This weekend is no different, with so much on offer. I always like to pack in a lot of “weekend adventures”, as I like to call it. This week I decided to compile a list of things that I will be getting up to over the next 48 hours.
The weekend kicks off (literally) as Ajax Cape Town take on the Black Aces at the Athlone Stadium on Friday, March 28. Kick-off is 8pm and tickets start at R40.
The SPCA Purina Woefie Wandel doggie-walk will take place on Sunday, March 30. Take your pooch to join in the fun with hundreds of other dogs at the lovely D’Aria Wine Estate in Durbanville. (Visit www.spca-ct.co.za for more information.)
Sunday is the final day of The ABSA Cape Epic at Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West. There will be a full day of activities and entertainment for young and old including the Liqui-Fruit Vineyard races as well as activities for the youngsters. You can also be on the finish line to welcome home the participants who have taken part in the gruelling eight day event. (Visit www.cape-epic.com.)
The Cape Town Eco Film Festival is currently on at the Labia Theatre on Orange Street until Monday, March 31. The selection of films offers insights and inspiration for change – encouraging the audience to tackle the challenges personally, as well as promoting public debate and raising awareness about important local and global environmental issues. For every ticket purchased at the standard price, R5 will be donated to Greenpop, who will use the money to help finance their re-forestation efforts in South Africa and Zambia.

Also, don’t forget to honour the earth on Saturday with Earth Hour at 8.30pm. South Africa will join others around the world in turning off lights for an hour as an act of symbolic unity. (Visit www.wwf.org.za.)
There’s no lack of things to do in Cape Town this weekend, so get out this weekend and make the most of this beautiful place we call home.
