The TSB Bank Festival of lights is a highlight on the national events calendar and its unique attractions are a delight to all who see them.
The TSB Bank Festival of lights is set in the magnificent 52ha Pukekura Park, Fillis St, New Plymouth, Taranaki. The lights along with the features spread throughout the park are a MUST SEE! Every year it kicks off in December to coincide with the Christmas at the Bowl concert. The festival runs through to early February and weekends through to end of March to compliment the concert line up at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands. Programmes for 08/09 will be available from November 2008.

The festival was established in 1993 (although its origins date back to 1953) and it's a great way to enjoy a summer evening in New Plymouth - particularly with the On Stage programme of entertainment in the park during the festival. On Stage is the entertainment in the park which takes place over two stages.
In addition, the Summer Scene programme offers a great range of fun activities for children, so be sure to check out what's on offer! From simple beginnings, the festival has grown into the nationally acclaimed summer-long event we see today, and best of all its FREE!
