The Sun City September reopening celebration continued this Heritage Day with local Sun Vacation Club holidaymakers.
The resort unlocked its doors, in a phased approach, from 02 September, following five months of lockdown.
An array of entertainers roamed through the resort performing flash mob singing and dancing with the likes of Amakhono We Sintu Choir, Segaetso Tswana Cultural Dancers and Bollywood Dancers, while Sunset Sweatshop performed at the Valley of Waves.
To celebrate Heritage Day, Sun Vacation Club holidaymakers lit their braais, a first for Sun City with a record 187 units firing up at the same time. Sun Vacation Club asked its members to dress in traditional outfits and proudly show off their roots in traditional style. The Sun Vacation Club is fully booked for the Heritage long weekend.
"Before Covid-19, Sun City had been operating 365-days a year for 40 years, so to say that we are excited to have reopened, is an understatement," said General Manager Brett Hoppé.
"South Africa is a country of incredible diversity and rich cultures and we wanted to celebrate our heritage and that of our guests," he said.
"With international travel open from October 1 following government's announcement of a move to Level 1 of lockdown, Sun City is looking forward to welcoming back our international guests, who make up 30% of our revenue," Hoppé said.
All health and safety protocols are strictly being followed as the celebration continues throughout the long weekend and ends this Sunday, 27 September 2020.
