White Night Festival on Yarra

Melbourne's biggest laser and water show will light up the Yarra with the country's first dusk to dawn festival.
Held in the CBD the white night festival will include dance parties, street theater and pop up food village from 7pm on Saturday 23rd of February till 7am Sunday.
Modeled on a concept made famous in Paris and Toronto, the night is billed as the city's major event between the summer sports season the Grand Prix and comedy festival. The centerpiece show on the Yarra From the Deep will have the giant lasers and water jets.
The sound and light show will run for every 10 minutes every hour throughout the night.

Hopefully we can all catch up and photograph the light show and then maybe hangout.

    It was great to meet new photography enthusiasts and have a great night out in Melbs. I think like most people, I lost the group about half way through, but with crowds that large it would have been impossible to stay together.
