Fiesta of Lights

A fairyland of 500,000 sparkling lights envelope the lakeside walkways of the Hawke’s Bay A&P Showgrounds this Summer season.

Starting on Saturday 12 December 2015 and going every night until Saturday 2 January 2016, you’ll see diving penguins, jumping fish, spurting whales and a host of colourful sea creatures amidst thousands of dancing fairy lights animated precisely to music.

The lights are turned on after dark at 9pm and then the wonder begins for young and old alike. We’re open every night, rain or shine including Christmas night and New Year’s Eve.

Other displays added include the spectacular Unison LED Ribbon Tree, Singalong to the Twelve Days of Christmas and a delightful Peek a Boo display.

Toilets available.  The event is set-up and run by 150 volunteers. Gate sales goes towards adding new light displays each year.
