Happy Aniversary Auckland

Fireworks to celebrate the Auckland Anniversary tonight.
Auckland’s anniversary celebrates the arrival of William Hobson, later the first Governor of New Zealand, in the Bay of Islands in 1840. Funny enough this date doesn’t have any significance to Auckland itself but has been celebrated every year since 1841

Starlight Symphony

Thousands of people gathered yesterday at the Auckland Domain to watch the Starlight Symphony, graced this year by world famous New Zealand opera Diva: Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.

The Skycity Starlight Symphony is a massive performance which includes the Auckland Philharmonia, the Skycity Massed Choir and a variety of performers. The show culminates with a laser show and fireworks. The audience are invited to make a donation or purchase a light stick. Every year a charity is selected to be the recipient of the funds raised. This years funds will go to Kidz First. It was a night to be remembered!
