What do you think about this year's Festival of Lights?
After much controversy the Festival of Lights has opened for another year.
In July, MJF Lighting, of Tawa, was awarded the contract to install the lighting despite the cheaper bid from incumbent New Plymouth company Wells Instrument and Electrical.
At the time there was public outrage at the news work would be given to outsiders, but five months on it seems all the hate is water under 'Poet's Bridge'.
A Daily News Online poll asking punters what they thought of this year's festival found 55.5 per cent thought it was the best yet, about 25.5 per cent thought it was the same as last year and just19 per cent thought it was worse than ever.
To put the issue to bed we thought we would give you a taste, via video, of what this year's festival has to offer.
