    When Santa Claus comes to town, Dunedin really does know how to put on a party. The Dunedin Santa Parade, organised by Dunedin Santa Parade Trust, overcame yesterday morning’s ominous weather to run in, mostly, blazing sunshine. […] Organisers estimated nearly 40,000 people attended the parade.

    Visitors will see new look in Pixie Town (+ video)
    By John Gibb
    Pixie Town is back at the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum, but in a slightly edgier format, partly inspired by American film director Tim Burton. Mr Cornelius said he sought to increase the show’s circus-like atmosphere, including through the music, and the show was always “a bit of fun” for museum staff, as well as for visitors.

    Mid-Summer magic draws crowds (+ video)
    By David Loughrey
    People have been lining up outside a Dunedin warehouse this week to see something enlightening. The Mid-Summer Lights display, in the Ward St building, opened earlier this week, with a crowd stretching along Ward St waiting to see displays usually reserved for the Midwinter Carnival. Inside, dry ice drifted past giant hanging fungi, while huge birds and fish competed for space under glowing stars, and supple gymnasts twisted on a hoop and hanging fabric.

    So many lights
    By Gawdy on Sun, 20 Dec 2015
    What a fabulous idea it was to have all the wonderful lights from the mid winter carnival processions all on display in one place for everyone to enjoy. The massive number of people waiting to get into the display each day just shows how amazing they are and how interested people are.
    But what a pity it is only on for a few days. Has anyone thought of how amazing it would be to have a permanent display of these awesome lights and each year it grows bigger as each processions lights get added to it?
