Lighting of Osmanthus Garden

Cornwall Park, Tomoana Road, Hastings, Hastings District, Hawkes Bay

Don’t miss the upcoming Lighting of Osmanthus Gardens from 4th to 8th April in Cornwall Park!

This iconic event celebrates the sister city relationship between Guilin, China, and Hastings. The tranquillity of the festival, the reflections of traditional Chinese silk lanterns in the waters, the lighting of trees, and the variation of the classical music accompaniment continue to be a Hastings icon; a treasure.

This year, new lotus lanterns will be seen sprinkling the garden’s waterways with their magnificence.
