Vector Lights adds glitz to Anniversary celebrations

Published: 24 January 2020

The Anniversary Weekend Light Show on the Harbour Bridge is ready to dazzle Aucklanders again with a show centred around sustainable energy.

“The Anniversary show visualises Auckland moving to a sustainable future”, says Auckland Councillor and Environment and Climate Change Committee deputy chairperson Pippa Coom.

“Aucklanders will be able to celebrate the region’s birthday with another spectacular show knowing that the energy used is completely clean and sustainable”.

Vector’s Chief Public Policy & Regulatory Officer Mark Toner agrees.

“Vector Lights is a great way to share with Aucklanders how new and emerging energy technologies can play a huge role in shaping the future of our industry to make electricity networks more efficient, reduce carbon emissions, and ensure our infrastructure can keep pace with rapid Auckland growth”.

The six-minute show references Tama-Nui te Rā (the sun), Hikohiko (electrical energy), and Hei te Ao Mārama (the future world of light), and weaves visuals with original sound and music.

The Anniversary show is repeated every night over the long weekend, including Monday night.

The Vector Lights Anniversary show kicks off tonight at 9pm and will run every 15 minutes until midnight.

It can be enjoyed from multiple locations around the Waitematā Harbour from Bastion Point in the east to Te Atatū peninsula in the west.
