20-23 OCTOBER 2017

This weekend, HighLight will transform Riddiford Garden in central Lower Hutt into a wonderland of brilliant light installations and live performances. Over four nights visitors to the carnival can enjoy walking through the gardens and immersing themselves in the various displays, live entertainment and interactive features. The event is open to all ages and free to attend.

Each night starts with kids’ entertainment on the main stage at 7pm, before the bells of the nearby St James sound just before 8pm, signalling the turning on of the lights. You’re then invited to explore the carnival, taking in our delightful features and performances, including for the first time in the lower North Island, Affinity. Our theme for this year is ‘Being Human‘, see if you can interpret all the ways the light installations and performances relate. We’re proud to have Alzheimers Wellington as our charity partner, we’re working together to raise awareness of dementia in our community.

Before you arrive, you might want to take a look at the map and event schedule to figure out how you want your night to go, or maybe you’ll just see where the experience takes you!

HighLight promises to delight, educate, entertain and surprise. We hope you have an amazing time.
