Blossoms by night: Japanese garden lit up for evening viewing

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A small part of Upper Hutt has been transformed into a Japanese blossom garden, complete with a waterfall, lakes and 350 flowering cherry trees.
Blossom Valley, believed to be the biggest event currently running in New Zealand, has added a night show where visitors can wander through the lit-up garden.
The festival runs until October 3 and was especially designed to run under lockdown.
Blossom Valley runs until October 3 at Aston Norwood Gardens, SH2, Kaitoke. Daytime session tickets $10 for adults, children under 12 free from blossomvalley.nz.
