We were lucky enough to check out the Dandenong Festival of Light tonight for the first time. What an amazing event!
Spectacular light sculptures, a temple, rides, food and (the highlight for the kids) a statue of a boy who squirts people. Watch out :)
The entire display is accessible and there is plenty to entertain kids of all ages.
The festival is on until October 18th and we'll worth a look. Parking is free and on site at Greaves Reserve or it's a ten minute walk from the train station. Tickets are available online and at the gate.
