Go to Glow? Tell us your thoughts

Published: 4 June 2024

The thousands of people who visited Glow in the Park last weekend are being encouraged to take an online survey about the event.

Well over 40,000 people attended the light show over three nights at the Ashburton Domain and now organisers are collecting feedback as part of a wider post-event analysis.

People who take part in the survey will go into a draw to win a pass to Opuke Thermal Pools and Spa in Methven. The survey closes on Monday.

Glow in the Park is in its third year and early indications from the 2024 display are that many visitors travelled from outside the district to attend the free event.

The survey will help determine if those visitors also went to other local attractions or restaurants, or would be keen to in future events.

Council organised the show, with support from local businesses, and Group Manager Compliance and Development Jane Donaldson said they were thrilled with the numbers of people who came.

"The most popular displays seemed to be the underwater world and the fire-breathing dragon, and comments we've heard so far are generally very positive.

"We'll be having a debrief to see what can be done better if Council decides to run it again, and we encourage people to tell us what they think in our survey."
