Southern Lighting Solutions supplies the Garden of Lights

A

Emperors Palace is getting ready to host the 11Th annual Garden of Lights, a magical festive season event that guarantees to light up Gauteng skies between 30 November 2018 and 02 January 2019.  The Garden of Lights was created to spread festive cheer through spectacular light displays, colourful characters, fun fair rides and delicious food offerings.  The Garden of Lights will take place in the perfectly manicured gardens of the five-star Peermont D’oreale Grande hotel at Emperors Palace.

“Over the years the Garden of Lights has welcomed over 1.4 million visitors, and promises to welcome countless more with the fantastic family-friendly activities we have planned for this year,” says Clive Tavener, General Manager for Emperors Palace.  “The Garden of Lights is our way of bringing back the days when mom and dad would bundle the whole family into the car to go and see the Christmas lights in town.”

Not only will families be mesmerised by the spectacular lights display, children will also have an opportunity to take pictures with Santa Claus, the enchanted fairy, Gift the present, the gingerbread man, Frosty the Snowman, Santa’s Special Elves and Emperors Palace’s very own beautiful Garden Princess!  The fun doesn’t stop there – explore the Enchanted Garden filled with spell-binding secrets and delightful surprises before skipping over to the Mystic Castle and Magic Sweet Shop, where a selection of the yummiest treats can be purchased!  Don’t forget to take a stroll to the North Pole for a peek into Santa’s Workshop.

If that’s not enough, for the first time in South Africa, International Illusionist Ryan Sharp will present his show “The Magic of Christmas” from 30 November 2018 to 02 January 2019. An amazing show featuring grand scale illusion, ventriloquism, comedy magic, complimented with dazzling special effects and costumes will bring magic to children young and old.   Tickets to The Magic of Christmas are R80 per person.  Please visit tixsa.com for show times and to book tickets.  For school group bookings, please contact 082 228 9660.

After strolling through the garden, visitors can grab a refreshing drink and bite to eat at one of the food and beverage stalls. The Garden of Lights will also feature a variety of fun-fair rides, including Jump and Smile, Break Dancer, Freeway Fantasy, Prate ship and everyone’s all-time favourite, the big Ferris Wheel (located at the garden entrance – from 3 December only)!

Tickets to the Garden of Lights are R25 per person or R100 for the show and garden package. Children under the age of two enter for free.  Bookings are essential and can be made by visiting www.emperorspalace.com. The gates will be open from 19h00 to 22h00 daily (Last entery at 09:30), weather permitting.  In the event of overcast and rainy weather, ticket holders will be contacted via SMS to move their booking.  Please note that the entry fee excludes fun fair rides, food or beverage, and entrance to The Magic of Christmas.
