Lights festival is off

Stellenbosch Municipality has taken the decision to cancel this year’s Festival of Lights due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Stellenbosch Municipality’s Head of Communications, this was a difficult decision to take, as the annual Festival of Lights (Liggiesfees) has become a highlight on the town’s events calendar.

He says: “In the light of the pandemic and the extension of the national state of disaster that impacts on the number of people allowed at public gatherings, we have decided to cancel this year’s event. The safety of our communities and everyone involved is our top priority. In addition, the municipality is also trying to cut down on spending, given the adverse impact the pandemic and subsequent lockdown has had on the economy.

The festive lights will still be installed and displayed. Residents are reminded to wear their face masks, sanitise regularly and maintain social distance when visiting the town to see the lights.
