“During the month of February, the city goes crazy with the annual shopping festival. There are lots of draws giving away valuable prizes in the shopping centres, and special promotions lure customers in. Many shops offer discounts of up to 70 percent.
“The festival coincides with National Day on 25 February and Liberation Day on 26 February. During this time, there are often firework displays and the city is draped in lights. Arts, sports, a carnival and other activities make this an exciting time to be in town. Check the festival website and ‘What’s On’ listings in the English-language daily papers for details.”
