I found about this event today and I’m glad I decided to check it out. If you are interested in seeing some pretty light installations, head over to the North Shore because Stellar is on.
Stellar: Bright Ideas is for the Matariki Festival and it runs until Sunday night. There are seven light installations celebrating the arrival of Matariki (Seven Sisters) constellation in the winter night sky.

I didn’t have photos of Fragments, Shroud and Array installations in my slr as it got too cold.
Here are some photos from my phone:
The events page said there will be some food stalls but when we went tonight there were only popcorn, coffee truck and churros. We wanted to get hot drinks but unfortunately the coffee truck ran out of milk so we opted for churros instead.
Maybe on Saturday and Sunday night it will have more food available but it’s better than nothing. If you’re in the area, I recommend checking it out. I wish it wasn’t that cold because I couldn’t concentrate and we didn’t stay for too long.
I also wish there were maps/signs leading to the next installations but overall I enjoyed this free event. We sat by the tree and ate our churros. I was surprised a lot of people especially children were out tonight too. There were beanbags by the tree and some of the installations so you can chill with friends (literally too because it is so cold!).
