The Pacaltsdorp Lights Festival was a resounding success and attracted between 900 to 1100 people inside and outside the Kaptein Dikkop Amphitheatre. Cllr Raybin Figland, Deputy Mayor of George officially opened the festive season by switching the festive lights on at the Kaptein Dikkop Amphitheatre. He wished Georgians and visitors alike a blessed and joyous Festive Season. The line-up of artists and choirs that performed at the event focussed on the spirit of Christmas with well-loved Carols.

The Pacaltsdorp Minister’s Fraternal with their spouses were part of the celebrations with Cllrs Theresa Jeyi, Marchelle Kleynhans and Ebrahim America supporting the event on behalf of George Council. George Municipality thanked the Fraternal for their involvement and support of the festival.

The Pacaltsdorp Lights Festival remains a very important event on the yearly calendar of George Municipality as it aims to contribute to the start of a good and cheery festive season for all, showcasing some of George’s best talent, entertaining the children and providing much-needed opportunities to local traders that had food and arts/crafts stalls at the event.

Cllr Figland thanked all George Municipality’s departments involved in making the festival a success and also thanked the South African Police Services (SAPS), Pacaltsdorp and local Neighbourhood Watch groups that kept everyone safe during the festivities. A big thank you to all the choirs and artists that performed and made the event a success.
