Cape Town’s History for Legendary New Year’s Eve Parties
The Victoria & Alfred (V&A) Waterfront is a premier spot when it comes to the nightlife in Cape Town, especially on New Year’s Eve. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these end-of-year celebrations came to a halt as strict movement restrictions were put in place. On December 31st of 2020 and 2021, the V&A Waterfront lit up their Tribute of Light, a massive beam made up of 36 vertical searchlights which could be seen throughout the city and surrounding suburbs with a view of the city bowl. The Tribute of Light was created to symbolise lives lost during the pandemic, as well as inspire hope, compassion, connection, and solidarity.
