Festival of Lights: A Dazzling Tradition
Dates: Sat 16 December 2023 – Sun 21 January 2024
During balmy summer evenings, Pukekura Park in central New Plymouth is transformed with an array of coloured lights. There is also a nightly program of performance and music amid the lakes and lawns. Established in 1993, the Festival of Lights had its origin in the multicoloured 15-metre jets of the fountain in the park’s lower lake. It was installed in 1955 to mark the visit of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh the previous year. Keep an eye out for MAD Media’s digital billboards as they promote this amazing event.
