Final Draw Fever

FIFA

It's Friday and Final Draw Fever is about to set in! At exactly 12h00 today the festivities begin in the city center. Long Street will be the eye of the fan fest storm - expect singers, stilt-walkers and (true to South Africa) some free shows from surprising sidewalk talent. Loads of people have been planning their escape from the 2010 mayhem, but what they haven't kept in mind is that, aside from the soccer, South Africa really knows how to party. I'm anticipating that tonight will put patriotism into perspective, as South African gets its first chance to dance on the world stage. In the spirit of inclusion and diversity the festival is free entry and the line-up is jam-packed with  South African flavour - highlights
