Following on from May, Vivid Sydney is still alive and well in Sydney. This kaleidoscope of bright colourful lights, music and entertainment will leave us for another year on the 9th of June 2014. For the latter event, there will be a dedicated kids play space at First Fleet Park at The Rocks. Otherwise, everything to do with Vivid Sydney will be suitable for everyone. The Emperors Quest at the Chinese Gardens will also be in full swing until the 30th of June.
