We're sorry. We made the decision to cancel the More FM Mata Riki KidsFest Parade early Saturday afternoon due to a severe weather warning for Christchurch and Canterbury. We know now that the weather during the Parade time was actually pretty good, but we'd had to make the decision earlier based on official forecasts.

We're sorry to anyone who was disappointed by this. We'd still love to see your lanterns though! Please upload them with #kidsfestlantern and be in to WIN our remaining KidsFest 2018 prizes.
