A fairyland of 500,000 sparkling lights envelope lake-side walkways. This festival, started as a millenium project in 1998, has grown in popularity with locals and offers an experience you will not see anywhere else in New Zealand.

There's diving penguins, jumping fish, spurting whales and a host of colourful sea creatures amidst thousands of dancing fairy lights animated precisely to music.

The toyland display features larger than life toy soldiers, candy canes, bells, stars and teddy bears. Our nativity scene, one of the largest in the country, is 40m wide.

The lights are turned on after dark at 9.15pm and then the wonder begins for young and old alike. We're open every night, rain or shine including Christmas night and New Year's Eve.

There's a hot dog, chips and drink stand at the entry gate. Toilets available. Our friendly staff members along the walkways are there to provide any help.

The New Year's Eve Celebration event will take place on 31 December with two fireworks displays one just for the kiddies at 9.45pm and the other at midnight. There's two stages of family entertainment, karaoke and inflatable rides.

Funded by Hastings District Council, Ngati Kahungunu Iwi Inc and Public Dreams Trust. Set-up and run by 150 volunteers. Gate sales goes towards adding new light displays each year.

Happy holidays!
