The annual Sydney Vivid Lights has once again captured the imaginative and colourful characteristics of the enviable cosmopolitan. Running for more than two weeks, the festival ended with a mesmerizing show of lights and colours as well as a record-high of more than 200,000 spectators over the weekend. This year it boasted of a very first Vivid Aquatique at Darling Harbour, which overwhelmed spectators in awe and amazement. This flamboyant masterpiece is this year’s crowd favourite along with the vibrant shower of colours showcased atop the Sydney Opera House.

The festival highlighted a number of historical buildings like the Museum of Contemporary Arts, the Customs House, and the Cadman’s Cottage. It also paved the way for showcasing artistic flare of various artists.

  3. This is great, I’ve seen pics of the opera house all lit up, but I didn’t realize it was part of a larger event. Thanks for the cool post
