It was a light show like no other at Castlepoint Beach last weekend.

Celebrating 100 years, the landmark lighthouse was lit in vibrant hues on Friday and Saturday nights.

Masterton photographer Pete Nikolaison captured the two- minute display which continued both nights until 11pm. The lighthouse centennial celebrations, which included numerous fun activities and displays, were part of the two-week-long Shear Fest culminating in the world's premier shearing and woolhandling championships next week, and also Castlepoint Beach Horse Races on Saturday, March 2.
