Cape Town is also the perfect destination to celebrate New Years Eve. Amazing Fireworks displays light up the sky over Table Mountain as thousands flock to the waterfront for open air concerts and shows. There are also street parties in the gay district on Coburn Street, the Winter Mardi Gras and more.
