The illuminations that have transformed the National Triangle after dark for the past week and half have now come to an end for another year after a final showing on Sunday night.

The accompanying Forage food festival has also wrapped up, marking it’s successful return to the Canberra events calendar after a two year absence.

Events ACT Manager, Ross Triffit said it was great to see Canberrans getting back out into the community.

“We saw huge numbers, particularly over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday night so we’re very happy with the crowd turnout.”

While the lights may now be switched off, the Enlighten festival continues.

The Balloon Spectacular which began on Saturday will continue taking to the skies above Canberra until Sunday.

As well as a long list of other events around the city until March 20.
