A riot of colour at the Gauteng Carnival [PICTURES]

Thousands of South African’s participated in the eighth annual Gauteng Carnival earlier this week. People dressed in colourful clothing, danced and sang as they paraded through the streets of Johannesburg.  The carnival, which is traditionally held at the beginning of spring and is part of Heritage Month celebrations, included a parade of colourful floats and troupes of revelers attired in strange and wonderful costumes singing and dancing to lively music. IHSAAN HAFFAJEE was there.
