Scavenger Hunts, a Flying Dino and a Painting Pig

Plus a soccer double header and new fashion from fresh designers

Franschhoek goes from art haven to art heaven this weekend with rare artworks, first time exhibitions and an artist from the animal kingdom. If you’re a sucker for strange flying objects then Zandvlei Nature Reserve has creative kites from around the world for you. There’s also checkpoints and challenges on a fun scavenger hunt, first dibs on the latest fashion and expert make-up tips. Soccer fans have a Cape Town PSL double header coming up and next week we’ll tell you where you can drink all the tequila your body can handle. 

15 Reasons to Get Your Car Serviced This Weekend
Here’s a deal to get revved up about. VW drivers who book to have their car serviced on a Saturday at Barons Cape Town VW will get a courtesy VW up! to drive to any one of the 15 experiences curated by CapeTownMagazine.com. The experiences are all close to the Barons Cape Town VW branch, and are either free or very affordable. For instance, R15 gets you an authentic Senegalese coffee experience, including the famous, spice-infused Arabic flavoured Touba Coffee at Khadim’s Coffee.


#Pickoftheweek: #Pigoftheweek
Go art gallery hopping for an entire weekend and get to view a rare, privately-owned William Kentridge piece, attend La Bri Estates’ first-ever exhibition and meet a pig that paints (true story) at Art Franschhoek.


2. The Amazing Race In Fish Hoek
Team up, dress up and fill up (your petrol tank) for an adventure that will have you racing around the Southern Peninsula to solve puzzles and complete challenges. All you need is three friends and your team is ready to go go go for the The Fish Hoek 100 And Beyond Scavenger Hunt.


3. Be Your Natural, Beautiful Self
Make-up and beauty experts are taking over the Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence, demonstrating to women how they can bring out their natural beauty at the Beauty Squad Expo.


4. Your First Look at The Latest Fashion From Young Designers
Young fashion designers, models and performers get the platform they need to take their first steps from Cape Town to Milan, London and New York. Witness a fashion show with exclusively-designed lines at the Creative Angel Fashion Show.


5.  Find Nemo Flying in Muizenberg
See dragons, dinosaurs and a couple of Disney characters flying around when kiters from South Africa and around the world bring their latest creations to the Southern Suburbs. You can even join the fun by making your own creative kite at an interactive workshop at the Annual Cape Town International Kite Festival.


6. The Citizens Are Back at the Cape Town Stadium
Benni McCarthy’s men will be hoping to turn around a 5-match winless streak when they return to their homeground at the Cape Town Stadium. Catch all the action when Cape Town City play Maritzburg City.

7. Stellenbosch FC Gunning for a Big Scalp
The Buccaneers are in town, but haven’t been on form as of late. Can Stellenbosch FC take advantage? Or will the Pirates’ massive Cape Town support spur them on to victory? Find out when Stellenbosch FC host Orlando Pirates at Athlone Stadium.

WHAT TO PLAN FOR NEXT WEEKEND
One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Floor
The Hamiltons Rugby Club is turning into little Mexico for a weekend of nachos, tacos and all you can drink tequila. So bring a designated driver to discover the local agave beverage brands (they can’t be called tequila) at the International Tequila Festival.


Sin In The City
All Saints’ Day is being turned on its head with a burlesque show that brings envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath onto one stage. It’s all sinfully entertaining with the Deadly 7 at the Galloway Theatre.


Celebrating Stellenbosch’s Strawberry Heritage
Jamestown is a quaint village in Stellenbosch that’s famous for one little thing -  growing strawberries. Celebrate this proud heritage with them while you sample strawberry based delights at the annual Jamestown Strawberry Festival.


And…
See artworks of 25 up-and-coming artists, as chosen by visual activist Zanele Muholi, in the Ikhono Lasenatali exhibition, now showing at the A4 Arts Gallery.
