Let’s face it, the dark, cold days of winter could use a little magic and boy, do we have some news for you! Kicking off this weekend, a magical light walk is coming to Auckland.
As part of the Matariki celebrations, Glen Innes’ Maybury Reserve will be transformed into an illuminated landscape for a week-long celebration. The Te Ara Rama Matariki Light Trail is now in its fifth year, and combines light, music and creativity across nine (nine!) themes.
Snug up nice and warm and brave the chilly night air for an enchanting journey along a flax-lined path. With thousands of fairy lights and vibrant pops of colour intertwined with the landscape, you’ll feel like you’re in a fairy-tale!
This epic event also has performances, workshops and delicious food stalls for you to make a night of it.
And, if you’re there on Saturday night, stick around until 9.30pm when a fireworks display lights up the sky!
And the best news yet? It’s FREE!
