DESPITE stormy weather cancelling one night, more than 23,000 people attended the fifth Floriade NightFest.
This year’s NightFest featured stand-up comedy, live music, DJs, cooking and DIY demonstrations, cocktails, and night markets, all set against a spectacular light show, “Synthesis of Light”.
This year’s event featured new programming around themed evenings including Chillout Wednesday, Latino Thursday, Party Night Saturday and Family Night on Sunday, encouraging repeat visitation by offering a different experience each night.
Tourism Minister Andrew Barr says Floriade NightFest has attracted a new target audience in recent years.
“The success of Floriade NightFest proves that Floriade is much more than just a flower show,” he says.
