I’m afraid I can’t recall exactly what this event was called.
It was a lantern festival/parade for the kids, that culminated in an event at Margret Mahy Family Playground in central Christchurch.
I was out exploring the CBD after moving down here, and was right time/right placed. A lot of beautiful lantern designs, food, live music and dance, and fireworks!
If you were there and/or remember what it was, let me know and I’ll update :)
