CAPE TEDDY BEAR SHOW

As I previously mentioned hubby and myself travelled to Cape Town, to attend the Teddy Bear Show, which took place in the lovely setting on the Wine Farm, Buitenverdachting.

The weather in the Cape had been awful so we were advised by family and friends to dress warmly, although on the day of the bear show, the sun came out, and we had a lovely hot day.
Soon vendors were setting out there displays which ranged from collector teddy bears, bears necessities, and suitable fluffy bears for small children to play with.

Surrounding the set up were the famous Cape Mountains, and of course all the wine farms, no one could have wished for a better setting or enjoyed a nicer day.


The famous Cape Town coon carnival entertained us through out the day and many people were tapping their feet to their lively music.



This year the show was left in the capable hands of “Prof” Brian from the University of Stellenbosch as his teddy bear partner who is also behind in the setting up of this show has taken on a teaching post in Korea.

Many posters lined the streets of Cape Town advertising the show, and the show was well attended. Picnic baskets were out in the gardens under the old oak trees, so the families enjoyed a full day outing. The little ones were not forgotten and numerous prizes could be won by them.
