With the postponement of the Nelson light festival in 2020 due to Covid, this year’s event was a welcome mid-winter treat.
Official estimate is that over 50,000 came out to experience the festival over the 5 nights. As usual, a great atmosphere throughout as people enjoyed the creative energy and interaction in chilly but perfect conditions.
While the central focus of this year’s festival shifted from Queens Gardens to Church Hill/Piki Mai, installations were well spread out. The images below show only parts of the festival; nothing fancy, just capturing some of the magic like many thousands of others there! You can’t beat the experience of being there though, so hopefully the uninitiated will get inspired about the next festival in 2 years time.
Feel free to share.
