Dunedin Midwinter Carnival

To celebrate the shortest day Dunedin held its annual Midwinter Carnival and lantern festival. The lanterns get bigger every year and this time round the stars were the swan and castle lanterns.
Due to the wind the fireworks were cancelled meaning the new years fireworks should be doubly spectacular.

*Fun fact* Pigalina and two friends, aged 15, attended Dunedin’s first Midwinter festival. We were pictured in the newspaper wearing our mid 90s grunge chic and holding candles. We were then chased down Lower Stuart Street by rogue fireworks. They have since learned their lesson and pay attention to the wind.
