Auckland's Domain has been lit up with bright lanterns tonight to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
The Lantern Festival is taking place from tonight until Sunday.
This is the first year the festival's been held in the Domain -- in previous years, it was held in the smaller Albert Park.
More than 800 lanterns were set up for tonight's launch and hundreds turned up to check them out.
Watch the video to see some of the lanterns on display.
