Lighting up the town

In what has become a bit of #blogjune tradition for me, today’s fourth post is about our night out at the Vivid festival. We took the boys in to the city last night, having done a bit of reconnaissance a week or so ago without them. The highlight for them was the display on Customs House, which was very much aimed at kids, with dinosaurs, gnomes and giant snails featuring in the show.

They were pretty interactive, although the queue was too long at some of them. The boys had fun with the large lit-up drums, and they enjoyed checking out the glowing “spider web”. The big pig was also an attraction. We stopped here for dinner, which included cupcakes for dessert to celebrate my wife’s birthday.
