David Kennedy, Head of the Christchurch Antarctic Office, part of ChristchurchNZ, said he was “excited to see an expansion of events around the traditional Antarctic season opening”.
“Days of Ice is a celebration of Ōtautahi Christchurch’s Antarctic connection, both modern and historic, and we can’t wait to see the public engaging with our passionate Antarctic community,” Kennedy said.
“Days of Ice shows the breadth of our Antarctic sector. There are events for the whole family, like the Antarctic Tram Tour and Explore Antarctica Family Day, as well as VR experiences at Tūranga and the University of Canterbury, and the Polar Film Festival at Lumiere Cinema.”
