And it's back...


Late May to mid June is the time Sydney shines - people flock to the city at night to check out the dazzling lights. Vivid Festival is art, music and the big draw, the lights. Those that follow the blog for a number of years know that I go hard, and this year is no exception.









Instead of the crowds at the Opera House for opening night, we had dinner at Lotus at Barangaroo and checked out the lights there, and then strolled through Darling Harbour (just missing the 8pm fireworks) to Uber home.






For an easy Vivid experience with the kids, this is one way to do it. From our table at Lotus we saw the giant lady (and we kept going over to see her up close and the kids got to talk to her), and the 'storm' in the forest entertained us all through dinner.

So you can see the scale





There are so many locations to experience Vivid this year, there's really no reason not to go!

  9. That's pretty cool! I'd love it. I'm artsy, so possibly I'm in the minority. Some might say it's scary or strange.

  15. Lydia,

    I'm often caught off guard when I see someone wearing a jacket and cap this time of the year but then I realize that you're in the southern hemisphere. We're heating up and you're cooling down. Right about now, I could use a little cooler temps. I always tell DH there's no making me happy when it comes to the weather. lol Thanks for joining my #WW linky party. Have a good weekend, my friend!

    Curious as a Cathy
