Leigh Central hosted part of the Lights at Leigh which was part of the Matakana Light Festival. What was really convenient is that Leigh Central is also our favorite place for Motorhome Parking in this area.

We were sitting at Leigh Eats enjoying a nice cup of coffee when we met Michelle and Rose. Rose used to live in Devonport in a past life and Michelle was organising the Leigh Light Festival.
The weather was awful with the rain pelting down but looking at the rain radar it was due to ease off about 3pm, an hour before the start.
Less than an hour later, the Sun came out and we were on 🙂
The Leigh part of it started at Leigh School where there was a scavenger hunt for the kids. First stop after that was the Fire Brigade a block away for heated Marshmallows on sticks.. Yum !
By this time, it was dark and the lights were on. Prizes were to given for the best lighting effort on a House or Letterbox.

Mums and Dads were at the indoor Markets hosted by Leigh Central and then for some like us, it was off to the Leigh Hotel where Hostess Sarah had gone all out and lit up her dress and and her hair which looked fantastic.
A great day finished off with a glass of something back in Rafe with the heater on!
