Once again Avebury House, Richmond Community Garden and Avon-Ōtākaro Network present a fun, winter-warming event by the Ōtākaro-Avon River Corridor.
This Sunday July 19th, Matariki in the Zone is back! There will be live music from the Natural Magic Pirates, Lisa Tui Jonathan Ensemble, Nich the Violinist and Tu tapatahi Kapa Haka group have a performance for us at 3.15pm. We’ll have activities for kids big and small – rock-painting, wood-carving, flax-weaving, marshmallow-toasting and more.
The delicious hāngi will be raised at 4.30pm, with huge thanks to Tuahiwi Marae. It will be served alongside a boil-up, vegetable soup, fried bread, hot chocolate and booze-free mulled wine. Coffee Skills Mobile will be there too, and a sausage sizzle fundraiser for Banks Avenue School during the day.
The Light Fantastic River Bike Ride is back at 5.30pm, and this year star-gazing in the nearby red zone with Urban Star Watch Christchurch is on from 6pm!
As the sun goes down, the lights will come up! It’s going to be a brilliant day out – and you’re invited!
