Prawns Galore at the 2018 Cape Town Prawn Festival
Surf and turf takes on a new meaning where seafood and horseracing come together at the 2018 Cape Town Prawn Festival
Prawn stars, there’s only one place to be this year to get your seafood fix. The Cape Town Prawn Festival and Vasco Prix Du Cap horse racing event both take place at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday, 24 February 2018, where guests can tuck into fresh prawns while enjoying a day at the races.
While horse racing and prawns may be an unconventional pairing, judging by the success of this family-friendly event in previous years suggests that the Mother City is rather fond of the combination.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE 2018 PRAWN FESTIVAL
Prawns for days: Prawns will be sold by the kilogram and there will also be a variety of stalls featuring different kinds of seafood for you to enjoy.
Hedge your bets: While snacking on those tasty crustaceans, enjoy the main event as you watch to see which horse will be first to the finish line in the Vasco Prix Du Cap.
You will also get the chance to win your share of R70 000 worth of prizes, with a grand prize comprising household appliances to the value of R30 000.
