2019 Parade Matrix
The Cape Town Carnival 2019 ‘VUKA UKHANYE Rise ’n Shine’ parade depicts a vivid journey of awakening, from sunrise and waking up in the morning to symbolically waking up to your own power, to our interconnectedness and the light within each of us when we open hearts, eyes and minds.
Blooming and blossoming, always turning towards the light.
