The City of Cape Town will celebrate five decades of its annual Festive Lights Switch-On, with a line-up to dazzle thousands of spectators. The event will take place on Sunday 1 December on the Grand Parade from 16:00.

The theme this year is “Cape Town: Window to the World” to reflect the diversity of Cape Town.

“The switching on of the festive lights is something all of Cape Town looks forward to as it signals the start of the festive season.

“We look forward to a wonderful evening of music and welcoming the spirit of the season,” says Mayor Dan Plato.

There will be live performances by The Zip Zap Circus, Early B, The Unknown Dance Crew, Andries Vermeulen, YoungstaCPT, Gemini, Ndlovu Youth Choir and Sho Madjozi.
