Auckland Lantern Festival

I give two thumbs way up for the Auckland Lantern Festival.  With such a large Asian population in Auckland, it is no surprise that the Chinese New Year is a big deal around here.  The lanterns were crafted especially for the event and adorned Albert Park for all to enjoy.  

We went with our good friends, Elder and Sister Ronnenkamp, who are serving a mission in New Zealand right now.  We arrived at dusk with enough time to enjoy the lanterns transform from light to dark. 

Yet another memorable date in Auckland.
