A guide to Auckland's Lantern Festival
currently: have a sore throat but I don't care :)
|He looks delighted for some tea. Ha. ha. [/end bad pun]|
How to make the most of the Auckland Lantern Festival:1) Wear good comfy shoes.
|Even the Skytower makes an appearance!|
2) Don't eat before you get there.
|Just one of like 1592736 food stalls. So much food....|
3) Bring hand wipes/bottle of water.
|5 minutes later and this is all over my face.|
4) Bring small change.
5) Ask people where they got their stuff from.
|See that lighted arrow in the middle? That's the start.|
6) Make time to see the acts.
|China's best (or only) reggae band, Long Shen Dao|
(You can watch one of their videos here)
There's also a karaoke stage, mini rides for the kids, and water orbs to play in and watch. It's fun :)
7) Take a camera and be a tourist in your own town.
|I would buy these flowers and recreate Wonderland.|
|A glowing tree! I'm easily amused.|
So you now have two nights left: Tonight and tomorrow. You better start making your way to Albert Park while you still can. Otherwise this frightening Bok Choy will come after you.
|I would never want to eat this.|
Have yourselves a lovely long Waitangi weekend :)
