The Nirox Sculpture Park was brought to a standstill this past weekend when the inaugural Casa Corona experience kicked off to mark the Winter Solstice on Friday 21st June. The 2019 Winter Solstice took centre stage as a select number of guests took in the breath-taking sunset that heralds the official count-down to Summer in the Southern Hemisphere as days get longer with each passing day.
From iPhonography tutorials, outdoor movie experiences, Corona cocktail-making classes to a silent concert experience, the event was well curated to ensure that those who chose not to hibernate in winter, really live it up Corona style.
It was a weekend-long lifestyle experience filled with artistry in the form of music, photography, food, and mixology; all brought together under a stunning atmospheric sunset of the Winter Solstice.
Influenced by themes from Mexico, France, and Spain, Casa Corona emulates a “Paradise in the City.” It is a paradise to escape to and live unforgettable moments at sunset. Casa Corona is full of immersive experiences where consumers can enjoy the perfect winter sunset with a Corona and a lime.
Corona Marketing Manager, Sifiso Pule, describes Casa Corona as a global lifestyle experience never to be missed. “Corona is a drink for all seasons, and so this winter South Africans should go enjoy their sunset moments as the countdown to summer has begun”
Guests across the three-day winter outdoor experience found their sunset through a film screening under the open sky, serenading sounds from Botswana born Mpho Sebina and food lovers were served a Latin-American cuisine.
Social media was buzzing throughout the weekend as the Casa Corona community celebrated the Winter Solstice in style using the hashtag #FindYourSunset.
