We left it til the very-very last night, but it was totally worth it. We have just come home from Lux – an epic night out in Wellington.
Miss14 and I wandered down from home along with seventy billion other people, as it was such a calm mild night perfect for wandering along the waterfront and around the city.
I had seen a few photo’s floating around on Instagram and Twitter, but didn’t quite know what to really expect until we got there.
Miss14 thought I was taking her to see the crane by Helipro with lights on it, she wasn’t that excited to begin with and thought it was going to be a bit lame….until we got there that is and she totally changed her mind
Lux was awesome!
So many awesome ones, from the:
• Monster’s Inc type Screamometer light flappy things ~ Screaming Rapture
• to glow in the dark lights ~ Potion Forest
• to Squid Bacteria that glows when irritated to ~ Vibrio Nimbus
• to Light reflected through water mist to music ~ X
• to Diamondy lights you can yell at to light brighter ~ Square things
I also really loved just wandering through the city casually and cruisey with Miss14.
We had lots of time to just chat and Joke around, Laugh, Dance, Sing and take silly photo’s.
We had a really early dinner so we could just take our time and not feel pressured to ‘get home’ because it was getting late or anything.
So we spent hours and hours down there and it was awesome. My photo’s don’t do it justice at all, but check out some of the fab picture galleries online, like on Twitter or Instagram, just search for the hashtag #WgtnLux or on the official pages @WgtnLux
We wandered into the Wellington Chocolate Factory which was open late.
They make organic, ethically traded chocolate on site and we had rich Hot Chocolates to take along with us. Yummo
Somehow we also had room for Gelato from Gelissimo Gelateria on our way back home too 😉 trying new flavours…if you can imagine what “Ambrosia” tastes like…yup, it was GOOOOD!
It was so great to see so many Wellingtonians out on a Sunday night with their family and friends, in the middle of Winter/Spring might I add.
So, thanks Lux for putting on an amazing installation and great entertainment for our city. I was highly impressed and we loved it.
Looking forward to it next year.
Did you get down to Lux?
What did you think, did you have a favourite installation?
