HighLight: Carnival of Lights

Event Date: 
20th October, 2017 to 23rd October, 2017
Event Status: 
Hutt City Council
Riddiford Garden and Dowse Square
Lower Hutt, Lower Hutt


Coming this Labour Weekend in October, HighLight will transform Riddiford Garden in central Lower Hutt into a wonderland of brilliant light installations and live performances. Over four days visitors to the light carnival can enjoy walking through the gardens and immersing themselves in the various displays, live entertainment and interactive features. The event will be open to all ages and will be free to attend.

Installations currently being planned for the carnival include a giant lightbulb suspended in mid-air, with an illuminated performer putting on a display inside. Kids will glow in the dark in a UV-light kid’s area, including special dipping paint that will turn their hands into a kaleidoscope of colours. Each night eyes will turn skyward for a fireworks display.

We're looking for reliable, friendly, fun and committed people to join our team for HighLight: Carnival of Lights 2017. Please note hoewver that the minimum age to be a volunteer at this event is 16 years old.

There are a wide range of roles we're looking to fill, from supervision of activities and installations to manning our information booths and coordinating our performer schedules. This is a great chance to get involved with Lower Hutt's newest and largest event.

We need as many volunteers as possible so it doesn't matter if you can only do one shift or four.

Thank you for taking an interest in HighLight and we hope you can be a part of our team!
