A half-hour light show will play out daily for the next few weeks, starting tonight at 9pm and repeating at the same time each evening. 

Weaving in the "t'was the lights before Christmas" theme, the light show also extends down to street level along Federal St. 

The display was created by award-winning local artist Angus Muir and is set to include some of his most "inspiring" installations.
