Gay Travel: The Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival 2012
Pink Loerie Mardi Gras is an annual weekend set aside to celebrate the Gay community, celebrate life and simply enjoy a long weekend of entertainment, comedy, music, dance and fun. It all started in 2000 in the little coastal town of Knysna, South Africa on the Garden Route, and has blossomed into a fully fledged fun extravaganza. Growing in size and popularity year after year, it has become a calendar favorite.

Knysna is located on the southern coast of South Africa about 6 hours drive east of Cape Town on the N2 highway, or a 45 minute flight to George and then 30 minute drive to Knysna. Although small it has become a favorite vacation destination for many South African and international visitors and has been voted “South Africa's Favorite Town of the year", twice. Measuring the flamboyant hospitality and energy exuded at the Mardi it is not surprising.  The entire town transforms into a festival as businesses decorate their windows in a show of support for the Pink Loerie.
