Travel on an Illuminated Heritage Steam Train
Enjoy time at a Winter Night Market featuring local Kāpiti businesses, food and drinks, on top of the market a fabulous array of Otaki businesses are also opening especially for the event giving you even more opportunities to shop or browse.
Light the Night Saturday 1 August 2020
Light the Night is a unique combination of vintage train journey and winter night market. So, all aboard! It’s time to get out and enjoy this amazing community that we live in.
Carriages of guests will travel on return journeys from Paraparaumu to Ōtaki where a night market will be hosted by local market organisers Ōtaki Yard and local businesses which you will also find open on the night.
Featuring amazing artisans and businesses from the Kāpiti Coast, Light the Night is spreading a little mid year joy to the Coast.
To make your journey a little more magical the beautiful train from local heritage operator Steam Incorporated will have exterior illuminations! We believe this may be the first time a Steam Train has been illuminated and run on the “main trunk line” in New Zealand. Steam trains have been missing from the rail in the Wellington Region for nearly a year and we are thrilled to mark their return in a special way and support the wonderful people who are keeping NZ rail history alive.
