Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of the dragon and that’s about as far as my knowledge goes. But every year around the beginning of February, Albert Park (located in the city) plays host to the lantern festival. A free public event that celebrates the Chinese New Year and gives everyone the chance to experience the smells, tastes, sights and sounds of one of Auckland’s largest communities. It’s a sight to see during the day, but when night falls, the lanterns radiate, glowing in all the colours of the rainbow.
Plus it’s one of those rare times you can enter a park at night without looking like your hooking, druggin or have the fear of been attacked.
