Youth Day Nightlife in Cape Town
Celebrate your youth and make it a party to remember
Youth Day, Sunday, 16 June 2013, is a day on which we remember the power of the youth. We celebrate those who defended their right to equal education, and we commemorate those who lost their lives in the struggle to make South Africa a better place for all generations.
And though this Youth Day falls on a Sunday – which means it’s a long weekend – and just because school may be out, it doesn’t mean you can’t learn a thing or two. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to instruct you in the ways of the party ninja and give you a taste of what’s hot and happening this long Youth Day weekend.
You gotta fight for your right to party!
