WAT IS DIE JAARLIKSE JAKARANDA KINDERHUIS KERSLIGGIEFEES ?
Jakaranda Kinderhuis in Pretoria, hou  sedert 2010 in Desember ’n Liggiefees wat strek vanaf 1 Desember tot 31 Desember. Die personeel, kinders en donateurs versier 21 huise en die terrein by die Kinderhuis met miljoene kersliggies, en maak dan die terrein oop vir die publiek om dit te kom besigtig oor die feestyd. Daar word ook ’n verskeidenheid van vermaaklikheid aangebied soos straatmusikante, sangers, orkeste, laser vertonings en verskeie ander vermaaklikheid gebeure gedurende die maand. Die fees hoogtepunt is gewoonlik ons groot gospel konsert waar daar van Suid-Afrika se top kunstenaars optree.

Die “Liggie Roete” strek oor ongeveer 800 meter en ons skep ‘n fantasie wêreld en ’n familie vriendelike omgewing met veilige parkering wat deurentyd beman is deur sekuriteitswagte. Ons vra ’n klein donasie by die hek as toegang fooi en lok jaarliks duisende besoekers na die terrein.
WHAT IS THE YEARLY JAKARANDA CHILDREN’S HOME CHRISTMAS LIGHT FESTIVAL ?

From the 1st to the 31st of December the Jakaranda Children’s Home in Pretoria hosts their annual Christmas Light Festival since 2010. Our personnel, children and sponsors decorate the 21 houses as well as the rest of the premises with millions of Christmas lights. The decorated children’s home is then opened to the public during the festive season. During the festival a big selection of entertainment is provided such as street musicians, singers, bands, laser shows and various other types of entertainment during the month. Our gala evening is usually our big concert with some of South Africa’s top artists performing.

The “Light Route” stretches over about 800 meters, and we truly create a fantasy world of Christmas lights that is family friendly with safe parking and security is provided. There is a small entrance fee of R10 at the gate end we have thousands of visitors each year.
