Thursday night I probably gave myself pneumonia in the freezing and wet air, and headed out with the sweetie, Neil and Chris B and family to Floriade Nightfest. As I said last time, I really don't think it's worth $25 entry. Still, the lights were pretty.
This year the flowers were arranged into patterns, but you'd really need to see them from the air to actually see those patterns.
Last time this same walk had strings of coloured lanterns. This year they had vertical strings of leds that started off as just white and falling gently with a soundtrack of forest rain. They didn't really need the soundtrack for the rain, as it was raining a bit anyway. But then the music changed and became a full on light show to music! That was pretty cool :)
The other thing I quite enjoyed were the jugglers who had lots of lighted props, which made for some really cool painting with light photos.
Finally a bit of a wander before heading home.

I'd really love a string of these... really!! :)
So last night we met up with Nat and Andrew and went to Floriade Nightfest.
I've never been before so I didn't know what to expect. I imagined more of a light show, with flowers being light up by coloured lights or fairy lights or something. So in that sense I was a little disappointed, as there wasn't really much of that. But there were some pretty things and we ended up staying til after 10pm.
Of course the first problem was getting in. The tickets said 6:30pm, so that's when we arrived. As did everyone else who had a ticket. So all these people started crowding around and it was all a bit unorganised cause people didn't know if there were two different queues for people with or without tickets or what. Took about twenty minutes to get through the gates. I think if we were going to do it again we'd turn up at 7pm and be done with it. But don't really think it was worth the $20 to do it again.
More photos after the jump...
This is where we've been tonight...
Too tired to sort photos tonight though.. tomorrow!!
