Lusitoland is an annual festival (run by the Portugues community) held in the
south of Johannesburg at the end of April/ beginnning of May of every year.
It runs for 10 days and the main aim is to raise funds on behalf of the
chicken on the barbecue
This is quite simply one of those events that you should not miss .... there is
loads of great Portuguese (style) food, pubs, coffee bars, live music and
musicians throughout the event, a flea market ... etc.etc...
We decided to go yesterday afternoon as the festival ends today 2nd May,
It had been raining earlier in the afternoon and when we got there the place
was one huge mud "bath" - you would think that this would stop people.
Not a chance... they kept arriving in their droves - for the food, the entertainment
and the sheer good vibe of the event.
We walked around (very cautiously!!!), enjoyed a great meal ......
...and it also presented a fantastic opportunity to do some night shots (luckily I
had taken my lightweight tripod with me) ....
And we got to enjoy Danny K on stage (a local artist).
I must admit, that he is a better musician than I had given him credit for,
and has a great stage presence to boot!
We left feeling that we had had a fantastic time and look forward to
next years event!
Go Lusitoland organisers - a job well done!!!!
