Melrose Arch’s Destination Christmas lights set the tone for the festive season

Melrose Arch is one of the first establishments to restore a sense of normalcy in anticipation of the festive season, offering Johannesburg residents the opportunity to be transported into a winter wonderland.

The Melrose Arch Precinct has always had an international feel to it. With its cobblestones and street cafés, the entire area instantly takes you away from your busy day-to-day life, as it allows you to have some sort of escapism. The precinct’s annual Christmas decorations continue to give off that feeling, as they truly encompass the beauty and excitement of the festive season. Visiting the winter wonderland on Monday, 9 November 2020, the streets were empty, allowing for each element of the décor to stand out brightly.

The Destination Christmas lights show the same decoration annually, however, with the intricate sculptures and hanging lights serving their purpose, there has been no reason to change the tradition. The display is enticing for children and adults alike, with the background being the perfect lighting and backdrop for holiday photos. Walking through the streets with the stunning visuals around you restores faith that the 2020 festive season can have some kind of normalcy, as this part of Christmas has remained exactly the same as in previous years.
