Rockin' and Riding Festival 2016
Rockin' and Riding Festival 2016
It was the 4th annual Rockin' and Riding Festival in Cape Town this year on 12 Nov 2016. It's theme is everything 1940's, 1950's, 1960's from rock 'n roll, cars, bikes, clothing, goods, etc. So most people dress up a little (or a lot) and everyone has a good time. I was fascinated by all the old vintage cars, some of which I'd never seen around here before. Interesting also to see lots of retro rusty looking finishes. Also present were locally made T-Shirts, beard oils, and many other interesting craft items. Certainly worth penning it in for a visit next year around November.

Cheese Festival
Cheese Festival
We went to the Cheese Festival at Bien Donne on 27th April 2010 and were there from 10:00 to about 14:15. The biggest collection of cheese and wine stalls I have ever seen! We spent a good 4 fours and we definitely did not see everything. I must have sampled at least 20 different wines and I lost count of the cheese samples. See http://www.cheesefestival.co.za/ for more info.

I certainly got my fill of interesting vintage vehicles but I was left severely wanting on the "innovation and concept cars" side... Not a single electric vehicle, and even at the Volkswagen stand I thought surely they must have an eGolf on show (in fact they told me they have no intention of even bringing one into the country). BMW was not to be found as I thought maybe they would have their i3 on display at least. Now that I think back, I can't recall ever seeing any hybrid cars either! There were diesel cars on show still though, which is nice while they are still available for sale. This is what had pulled me from the advertising: "This impressive arena will host the best of the best of the top manufacturers and dealers, showcasing new cars and concepts in RSA including all the major brands such as the likes of Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Fussi, Infiniti, Iveco Jaguar, Kia, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes, Man, Porsche, Scania, Toyota, Volvo, VW to name a few." Maybe I'll l skip the next two years or so until South Africa catches up with the newer trends in motoring....
