Reasons why Enlighten last night was the best place to be:
- — A warm clear night,
— a gibbous moon,
— beautiful architecture transformed into gargantuan artistic canvasses,
— A bar selling Little Creatures Bright Ale at $7 a cup,
— Great music (fortunately with no one paying attention to Fun Machine’s lyrics)
— Saucy puppet show at Questacon
— Huge happy crowds in the normally desolate parkland surrounding the national institutions
— Eight foot tall insects
— Some really great food vendors
— All for free (OK you had to pay for food and beer)
I hear the lights will still be on tonight if you haven’t checked it out yet, but not the other entertainments.
If it’s on next year you’ll be wanting to clear your schedule for it.
Here’s a slideshow of pics we’ve had sent in from readers with a great slab of them thanks to SlappMonkey.
