The Lantern Parade

Saturday 17 March – 7.00pm to 10.00pm at The Square


Enjoy family entertainment and food trucks in this colourful, vibrant event.

The talented team from REACT (Rangiwahia Environmental Arts Centre Trust) are coming back with an exciting and spectacular night, with street performances, a Balkan-groove marching band and the unveiling of the new centrepiece “Year of the Dog” lantern.

Entertainment and performances will start from 7pm.

The parade will leave from the stage at 8.30pm and wind its way around the Square with everyone encouraged to join in.

The community is encouraged to make and bring their own lanterns of any shape or size. You can make your own under the instruction of the REACT team at our lantern making workshops, which will be held over a number of sessions between 25 February and 11 March.
