HighLight: Carnival of Lights 2019

Get lost at this year’s Carnival of Lights.

Interactive musical trumpet flowers, a canopy of florescent towering mushrooms and ultra violet spaghetti. It sounds like the start of a bizarre joke, but the only reason you'll be laughing is the sheer delight that HighLight: Carnival of Lights 2019 will bring.

The theme of this year's carnival is 'lost', promising to take the popular annual festival to exciting, uncharted territories. Which of the five zones will you disappear into first? Wherever you go, just keep an eye out for the many mythical creatures lighting up Riddiford Gardens this Labour Weekend.

Those who have been before know that HighLight is a light festival like no other, blending world-class, interactive installations with the sort of large-scale yet tight-knit community feel only found in Wellington. Dazzling, Insta-worthy light features and performances span the expanse of the garden, with stations conveniently set up where you can enjoy a hot drink or just sit down for a bit.

Daylight saving starts in October each year, and over in Lower Hutt the locals take their appreciation of light to whole new levels. Wait for dusk to fall, don your puffer jackets and don't miss this local treasure of a festival.
