Franklin Road Lights Ponsonby / Freemans Bay Auckland 2013

Every December 1 Ponsonby lights up  when Franklin Road kicks the Christmas festival off. This event each year exceeds the previous.
It is most generous offering from the residents who live in this already more than busy road .Their insistence despite offers of serious money that it be noncommercial, is inspirational.

This year it was opened by America’s cup captain Dean Barker and a crew of kids playing in the artificial snow. 
Between now and Christmas Day thousands of kids, some in the pyjamas, will come to view and enjoy this offering and dad's wallet and mum's purse will get a rest.It is Christmas in Ponsonby and everything  in good taste goes.
