Bendigo’s Enlighten festival will launch tonight ahead of White Night on Saturday.
Last night, social media featured a few previews of what residents can expect to see when Bendigo lights up.
The town hall was doused in colour as technicians and artist Tashara Roberts tested her work on Tuesday night.

Elsewhere, towers that will be used to send the projections onto buildings have been set up around the CBD.
Photographer Joel Bramley got a sneak peek of different locations of Enlighten including Bull Street, Conservatory Gardens and Chancery Lane.
The Enlighten projection festival features 19 arts projects around the city between August 29 and 31 before it merges with White Night on September 1.
Nineteen restaurants and cafes in the central business district planning to stay open late, according to White Night’s website, with nine food vans also listed.
Enlighten is a locally-driven festival that aims to create opportunities for local artists and engage diverse communities.
White Night's illumination festival began in Paris in 2002 before arriving in Melbourne in 2013. It has since expanded to include regional Victorian cities.
