# The City of Cape Town is preparing for the much-anticipated Tweede Nuwejaar Minstrel Parade on 2 January. The city says the Cape Town Street Parade promises a world-class event for residents and visitors to the Mother City. Minstrel troupes from across Cape Town will perform in the streets as part of a long tradition and legacy of Tweede Nuwejaar. The day commemorates the one day slaves were given to relax by their colonial masters.
