Glow in the Park celebrates 100 years for EA Networks

EA Networks has partnered with Ashburton District Council to celebrate 100 years of serving the community by staging a three-day lighting spectacle at the Tinwald Domain. 

Ashburton Glow in the Park will be held from the 22nd - 24th July. The event was originally planned for August 2021, however was postponed due to Covid-19. With a new venue and even more special effects planned, visitors can look forward to walking through artistic and interactive light installations, grabbing at bite to eat and enjoying some time with the family. 

EA Networks Chief Executive Roger Sutton said Glow in the Park will be a special show for the community. The free event will be a spectacular way for the business to mark 100 years serving the district. "The domain will be dazzling. We want to focus on a celebration that can involve the whole community with amazing special effects that people of all ages can enjoy," he said.

The show runs from 5.30pm - 9.30pm each night.  People will be encouraged to follow a trail of light features, with interactive features such as a UV light area (remember to wear white!).

Information panels will also tell EA Networks’ story, from its beginnings as the Ashburton Electric Power Board to the present day as a provider of electricity lines and fibre-optic cables for internet.
