Make your way down Victoria Promenade and immerse yourself in the world of giant inflatable mushrooms illuminated with vibrant neon lights, creating a truly surreal atmosphere. A 5m tall futuristic archangel puppet with thousands of LED lights will gracefully roam along the Harbour Esplanade. As darkness falls, watch the night sky comes alive with a spectacular laser and light activation, forming a majestic web of lights that stretches across Victoria Harbour.
