CAPE TOWN – Knysna will be coloured pink over the next six days in celebration of the LGBTI community.
The Pienk Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival starts on Wednesday.
The event includes drag shows, beauty pageants and art exhibitions.
Festival organiser Luan Schultz explained this year’s theme.
“The festival is celebrating its 17th birthday. It’s been themed as ‘Once Upon A Time in Eden’ due to fact that it is in Knysna and it is the forest, so we just felt it was suitable to bring it back to the forest theme.”
