Light up your life
We were on our way to Flinders Street station after visiting the Grand Trailer Park Taverna. Passing the Melbourne Town Hall, we noticed a few people starting to gather expectantly behind temporary fences. We also noticed some large projection units, and decided it was worth hanging around for a while to see what was going on.
Vibrant colour as the town hall lights up
At 9.00pm, the Town Hall was suddenly lit up. As well as the lights playing across the facade, there were little animated elves running across the walls. We noticed a large projected countdown timer, starting from 5.00 minutes, and wondered what was to come.
It turned out to be a delightful light show. It is a show that celebrates Melbourne's multiculturalism, displaying colours and designs that are representative of the various countries from which Melbourne's residents have come.
