Festive Lights Switch On

With a history spanning five decades, the City of Cape Town has been illuminating some of its streets with themed lights to usher in the festive season. The Festive Lights Switch On has become a beloved tradition, with thousands of families gathering to witness the magical transformation of the city streets into a dazzling display of twinkling lights and colorful decorations. The festive atmosphere brims with joy and anticipation as the popular concert on stage, featuring a star-studded line-up, kicks off the countdown, leading to the ceremonial switch-on that officially marks the beginning of the holiday season.
