Carnival spirit

It’s Heritage Day this weekend on Saturday and that means it’s time for the 12th annual eMzantsi Carnival. This year’s event, Hilltopia, is taking place in Red Hill. The celebratory parade starts from Lower Camp at 10am and will continue through Middle Camp with dancing, puppetry, ghoema-samba drumming and singing back to the community clinic for the stage show which runs until 2pm.
