A light up leafy event promises to be spectacular in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens during the July school holidays. It will be part of the Botanic Gardens 150th celebrations this year. The event also coincides with TVNZ Two’s Kidsfest. It will be a rare treat to see our magnificent Botanic Gardens presented this way in the early evening.

I am looking forward to seeing the World Peace Bell being part of the lit up leafy route. The event is not one to miss. It promises to be ideal for photography. Those attending should also bring a torch.

Dates are July 18, 19, 20, 21 and 25, 26, 27 and 28 from 5.30 pm to 7 pm.
