We’ve been following the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival over the past week. From stunning fireworks to amazing talent, to one of the most beautiful venues in New Zealand, the HGAF has outdone itself this year. We’ve turned up in person to soak up the atmosphere, and we’ve followed the action on Twitter. We’re so in love with it all that we’ve dedicated our latest #lovethetron roundup to the #HGAF.
Keep following the action on the hashtags, and the official Twitter: @HGAFestival.
