An enchanted vine of fluorescent flowers will transform a central city lane as mesmerizing cascades of luscious purple-violet flowers bring the natural world front and center into the urban environment.

Naomi & Bill Kirk Park, in Mangere Bridge will be transformed into an Enchanted Garden with a magical display of 500 fluorescent flowers. The mystical sound of handpans by Alive Metal reverberate as viewers wander through a field of flowers filled with vibrantly coloured, unique blooms. Visitors will be able to grab a bite to eat from the food trucks, relax on the beanbags and as the sun sets, watch the flowers come to life and light up the night.
Featuring Inflorescence, a collaborative light-based installation showcasing the potential of plastic as a material for making art. Over 1,000 plastic bottles have been meticulously spliced together by a collective of artists, creating an otherworldly environment that is industrial yet natural.
A free, zero-waste event, suitable for all ages. Wheelchair friendly. Fun for the whole family.
Generously supported by Mangere Bridge Business Association, Auckland Council and EcoMatters.
