The 6th annual Matariki Light Trail turns Maybury Reserve into a magical landscape.
Dress up warm and come along to this popular Maori new year family celebration to welcome the Maori new year planting season with lights, fun and festivity. For one week, take a magical journey along a flax lined pathway among thousands of twinkling fairy lights.
The light trail starts at Te Oro Music Centre with nightly performances by local performers who share their talent from 7pm. They include kapa haka groups, hip hop dancers, cultural performers, singers and bands.
The finale on Saturday 21 July includes a community concert and a spectacular fireworks display to Maori and Pasifika music at 9:15pm.
Bundle up warm and join the celebrations.
