3:40 Fiesta of Lights - Te Rangi Huata
Dolphins leap into the air, Kiwi surf the waves in unison with holiday music .. and it's all done with dancing fairy lights. The 14th annual Fiesta of Lights celebrates Christmas at the seaside at the Hawkes Bay A& P Showgrounds in Hastings with more than 500-thousand lights, and 40 animated light sculptures made by local artists. The lights are turned on every night at 9pm through January 5th. Te Rangi Huata is man behind the bright idea for the Fiesta of Lights.
4:06 The Panel with Bernard Hickey and Jordan Williams. - The people in the queues outside the city missions, and how many of them need to be there. The Government's deal with Sky City for the National Convention Centre looking doubtful. The Rob Fife legacy at Air NZ under attack by the people who think the airline's advertising has demeaned it. And on the day after Justice Winkelman told us to lay off the judges, strange judging decisions.
