Report by Gabi Zietsman and Thomas Mills
The National Arts Festival ended with a big burst of colour and sound as a throng of local performers hit the streets of Grahamstown for the last day parade. From bands, choirs, brass and batteria to stilts, apocolyse survivors, cuddly animals and Nounouche’s Side Show, the parade had the local community involved with other festival acts, even international performers like The China Fujian Art Troupe. This is the biggest and best the parade at the National Arts Festival has ever been and there are plans to expand it next year. cueTV got the street action and spoke to the co-ordinator Gareth Walwyn.
