Bright Nights has turned the Viaduct Harbour into a visual wonderland and around 100,000 visitors are expected to weave their way through the luminary installations over the next three days.

"Bright Nights is a unique opportunity to interact with pieces by world-class lighting artists here in New Zealand," Bright Nights art director Angus Muir says.

This is the second edition of the event but Muir is hoping it can become an annual attraction on the Auckland waterfront.

This year, the trail of light installations has almost doubled in size, featuring more than a dozen interactive displays from both local and international artists.

With a theme of sea life and sustainability underpinning the event, key highlights including an underwater masterpiece titled Monstrum Marina by special effects studio Creature Post, animating Viaduct Harbour's marina, as well as the return of the Silent Lights disco by Ladi6, courtesy of Spark & Spotify.
