The street party for the Festival of Lights was held tonight in Lyttelton. I went along with the camera and tripod and was totally unprepared for the number of cars and people. It’s a popular night out, even on a short winter’s day.
The locals really get into the spirit of the event, lighting up their homes with fairy lights and LED lights. It’s very pretty. I arrived just as the fireworks was going off – they were pretty spectacular and boy what a loud boom they made.
