Just as impressive as autumn, spring in Bright is a veritable bouquet of colour!  Everything comes to life with startling clarity.  Locals proudly open their garden gates to boast their colourful bounty.  Snow fed creeks and rivers roar and the skies overhead are a brilliant blue.  Aerial sports and taking on the rapids seem highly inviting even to the fainthearted!  And, just like autumn, festivals and events abound.  The Bright Spring Festival is a highlight of the season.

Go to the Bright in Spring video and see for yourself what Bright has to offer in spring.
