To accommodate the event’s growth, Light Up Winter has moved to the Big Fruit Reserve car park across from The Mall.

The evening will be filled with live music, fire dancers, roaming street performers as well as a vibrant night market offering delicious food and tasty treats, homemade goodies, crafts, and more. If the cold becomes a bit much for the little ones, they can escape to the Craft Cave to create their light-up masterpiece, get creative, or snuggle in for a story or two.

The highlight of the evening is the mass lantern release that lights up the night sky.

This is a magical moment that is definitely not to be missed.
