Emperors Palace lights up the night sky this festive season.

10 November 2009

Emperors Palace will again be bathed in a magical sea of light during this festive season when the spectacular Garden of Lights displays are activated for the third year in a row.

Last year saw a staggering 105 000 people visit the Garden of Lights and this year it promises to be even more magical. Running daily from 4 December 2009 until 3 January 2010 between 19h00 and 22h30, the Gardens of Vespasian at the magnificent Peermont D'oreale Grande will be transformed into a delightful wonderland filled with astounding Christmas light displays, characters and surprises.

Entry to the Garden of Lights is free and is a visual spectacular in which Santa and his friends can be found with surprises for everyone. Local celebrity, musical talent and news reader Jen Su will be gracing Emperors Palace with her vocal talents by performing a Christmas carol prior to the lights being switched on, a not to be missed performance. Visit Santa and his elf at the Candy Cane Christmas Tree where little ones can give their wish list to Santa or take a photo with the Christmas Angel and the Sparkle Fairy. You even get a chance to dance in the snow whilst watching the hypnotising water laser show. Take a break, by going down to Santa's workshops to indulge in one of the many light refreshments or heavenly treats that Santa's helpers have to offer hungry tummies.

The Garden of Lights is the perfect start to the merriment and cheer of Christmas and fills the air with the delightful laughter of young and old alike every festive season. Quite simply, it is the perfect way to get into the spirit of Christmas!

This festive season there is no reason to leave Gauteng as Emperors Palace will bring a feast of family entertainment to one place. Over R100 million has been spent on revamping The Emporium - it is now a world-class entertainment destination that boasts premium restaurants, entertainment outlets and the ultimate cinematic experience in Africa. The resort will also be hosting the Summer Holiday Festival from 17 December 2009 to 10 January 2010 that will include an incredible line-up of unbelievable performers.
