Whether you love a good photo op or simply have an appreciation for the arts—the enchanting Night Lights at MOTAT will be right up your street. From Friday 25 to Sunday 27 June, MOTAT will be coming alive at Matariki with light installations, live music, fire performances and much more. 

Ride on a heritage tram illuminated by fairy lights, see the glow of the Blacksmiths forge at work, marvel at the Military Search Light with more details to be announced.

Dig into some glowing sweets at the LED Cotton Candy booth or pick up a doughnut or three from Donut Dudes. If you’re not so much of a sweet tooth, fear not. Head for some hot, hand-cut, Double Dutch fries topped with dutch mayo, satay, onion or any topping of your choosing instead or perhaps a dog from Fritz Wieners.

Once you arrive you’ll know what all the buzz is about.
