Residents and visitors are advised to take note of the temporary road closures scheduled for Saturday 2 January 2016, between 08:00 and 23:59, to accommodate the annual Tweede Nuwe Jaar road march through the city centre.
‘This annual event is part of the cultural fabric of our city and is unique and synonymous with Cape Town. Residents and visitors from around the world, irrespective of their cultural backgrounds, are attracted by the brightly coloured outfits, the vibe and the spirit of the participating groups. Each one kitted out with a vibrant mix of colours and their own unique dance moves and sounds. I am certain this year the groups, who have been hard at work, will once again thrill the thousands of people who flock to the city centre to take in this unique sight and sound,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Economic Development, Councillor Garreth Bloor.
