Carnival of Lights By Dan and Michele Taylor

Labour weekend saw the transformation of Riddiford Gardens in Lower Hutt into a wonderland of brilliant light installations and also included live performances. Over four nights people were treated to a range of light displays, live entertainment and interactive features. Kids’ entertainment kicked off each night at 7pm and at 8pm bells at the nearby St James Church signalled the turning on of the lights. The evening culminated in a fireworks display at 9.30pm. The theme of this year’s event was Being Human, with Alzheimers Wellington as the Hutt City Council’s charity partner, along with Ryman Healthcare with the Affinity display, working together to raise awareness of dementia in the community.
