Sydney celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a light tribute

Sydney’s Vivid Light Festival has been given a royal touch with iconic monuments around the harbor lit up in regal purple to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The seven-minute light show began at 9 p.m. Thursday as part of a national program lighting up monuments to coincide with official celebrations in the UK.

The Harbor Bridge, Luna Park and buildings around Circular Quay and Sydney Harbor Ferries were decorated in purple.

The NSW Parliament is lit through Sunday.

Other buildings and landmarks include the Sydney Cricket Ground and CommBank Stadium, as well as several buildings in the Sydney Olympic Park.

Government House in Sydney will be lit up until June 13 and will welcome the public on June 12, the Sunday of the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend.
