A Feast of Festivals
Many smaller towns around the country have cottoned on to the fact that festivals attract visitors - both local and international.
The pioneers were Grahamstown with its arts festival - now the world's biggest, after Edinburgh - and Ficksburg, with its
long-established annual Cherry Festival. Now there are festivals of poetry, film, arts, dance and theatre, not to mention
whales, wine, brandy and even cheese. Look in the local newspapers for details.
