Thirty concrete/fibreglass gnomes will be transformed into works of art at this year's Luma light festival, to start on May 31.
The gnomes have been shipped to artists around the country, who have created their own pieces to go on display in Gnome Alley throughout the event.
Artists include renowned Auckland artist Dick Frizzell.
Luma Light Festival Trust chairman Duncan Forsyth said the gnomes also served a philanthropic purpose and would be sold after the event. Money would go back into the trust's emerging artist programme.
During Luma, Gnome Alley will be between the tennis courts and the bowling club.
Luma runs from May 31 to June 3.
