The inaugural Night Lights Dragon Boat Festival will take place within Westhaven Marina. Head over to see this exciting display of twilight 200m dragon boat racing, traditional food and cultural performances. 

The festival will bring communities and culture together in the heart of the city with a fusion of creative lighting exhibits created by Angus Muir and cultural entertainment from Tung Tek Lion Dancing Association and the Epsom Chinese Association.

Originating from China's southern Guangdong Province, dragon boats are a popular part of Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland’s maritime scene, so this event is an exciting addition to the City of Colour celebrations.
