Heather helps Duncan see the light(s)

You might remember Story's visit to Hamilton Gardens last year.

Duncan had fallen in love with the place but Heather was not so convinced so he took her there and she thought it was great.

So Heather decided to try and find something better and took Duncan to New Plymouth for the Festival of Lights.

The festival takes five weeks to set up and uses 1200 light fittings, approximately 12 kilometres of cabling and 20,000 cable ties.

The festival began in 1953 when lights were put in the fountain to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.

Story went along to see if Duncan was won over. Did the festival outshine the gardens?
