Named Sylvester in some parts of the world after Pope Sylvester I, New Years Eve is a time in the Gregorian Calendar that celebrates the last day of the year with social gatherings that usually last right through the night into the following day.
Cape Town is usually the most liveliest place on earth, with places like the V&A Waterfront coming alive with a great display of fireworks which are watched by many from the top of Signal Hill, or even Lions Head. The City Bowl has many restaurants and clubs that stay open and celebrate New Years in the most exciting ways. Camps Bay and Hout Bay also have exciting lineups to usher everyone into the new year, so there is no end to the amazingly awesome things to take part in.
Whether it’s the V&A Waterfront, The Twelve Apostles Hotel, Kirstenbosch Gardens or even the Cape Town Comedy Club, there is a party to be found where your countdown into the New Year will be a definite time to remember. Cape Town promises and has delivered some of the most incredible New Years known to man, and will continue to do so as long as there are New Years to be had.
