Feast of the Clowns

The Tshwane Leadership Foundation hosts a festival every year called "Feast of the Clowns." There are events throughout the week, from workshops on issues in and around the city, to arts workshops and performances of all kinds. (It was amazing to hear the Soweto Gospel Choir on Wednesday night!) The big event of the week is the street festival and march, which a bunch of us attended yesterday. It was a gorgeous day to march through the city.

Our marshals, ready to keep the crowds in line for the march

Laura with some of the girls from Lerato House, getting ready for the march

Dancing and marching through the streets of Pretoria

I took a picture of Sarah in Church Square, and one of the enthusiastic marchers joined in

Andrew and I cut across the square and took up positions on either side of this crosswalk... we watched the whole parade march between us before meeting up with the rest of our group
