Tauranga Festival of Lights


Before we left Tauranga I made sure to visit the Festival of Lights which was happening along the waterfront from the 11th to 16th July. The teens and the other half standing in front of the Matariki Display.


This is usually a display of different types of plants - at the moment it looks like there are some Calendula and other shrubs shaped and lit up like a boat.


These palms are lit up from the base near the railway tracks.


And this playground area for the kids were lit up almost like a space rocket.


This was my favourite - two people dressed up as cats - so futuristic!


The last one was different trees were wrapped with different likes of lights. I think for us we wanted to see more so it seemed like there wasn't enough. Good to experience though.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday.

  4. Beautiful Amy -- I'm glad you took time to visit the festival before you left. I first learned about it on a blog from India -- did not realize (but should have) that it was celebrated elsewhere. Wonderful.

  13. Light festivals have become very popular over the last several years. I like these smaller ones that are more community orientated.
