2017 Wellington Night Market Lantern Festival

Wellington Night Market loves lanterns!
Once a year, the Wellington Night Market on Lower Cuba Street is transformed into a wonderland lined with lanterns. In 2017 we’re bringing back the lantern festival even bigger and better than ever!
More than 600 handmade lantern displays will light up the iconic street, including artistic installations of beautifully sculpted life-size lanterns designed in the form of majestic animals, and abstract lantern designs in all shapes, colours, and sizes.
Entertainment will be in the form of talented musicians and performers rocking the main stage as well as various activities, including the famous lantern riddles and draw a love fortune stick.
This year, we present to you “2017 Wellington Night Market Lantern Festival”: Let the lantern magic begin…
