Sun City Illumination
The Sun City night illumination will be on turned on from November Saturday November 14th and will run until Sunday February 28th 2020. The illumination is turned on at 4.30 pm each day. Normally, the display is until 10 pm, but due to the Coronavirus the hours maybe shortened in 2021. About 70,000 lights are usually used in the display.

Sun City Switch on event

The switch on event for the Sun City Illumination has really metamorphosed over the last few years. The occasion is now a two day event. On the Saturday when the lights get turned on, the event starts from 4 pm with an opening ceremony and gospel performance. Moreover, there are a number of events through the evening with closing around 8 pm. However, in 2020 on account of the Coronavirus there will be no switch on event.

In a ‘usual’ year, the celebrations continue on the second day with more performances and events from 11 am to 4 pm. There is a marché on that day too with about 20 food stalls.
