Cape Town Minstrels

Vivid Cape Minstrels

The weekly photo challenge vivid imediately bought to mind the bright, intense and cheerful colours of the Cape Town Minstrels. In CAPE TOWN, South Africa you get to watch these colourful and brightly dressed mistrels parade the streets as they celebrate the Tweede Nuwe Jaar event ( Second new years ).

The Cape Minstrels (also known as the Kaapse Klopse) take over the streets of the Mother City each year on the Second New Year Street Parade, which takes place on 2 January.These minstrels, all dressed brightly parade the streets, waving parasols, strumming banjos and making merry with music. The whole city was engulfed in their festive mood and it felt like everyone was out and trying to get a glimpse of these cheerful minstrels.
