For our 9th year of the More FM Lantern Parade we're taking an exciting exploratory night time journey through central Christchurch from Cathedral Square to Margaret Mahy Playground.
Gather in the Square from 4:30pm where there'll be food trucks, stalls, entertainment and free hot chocolate from the More FM crew (first in, first served).
Bring along your own creations. Lanterns, glow sticks, wearable art or torches.
New Regent Street and Cathedral Junction will be lit up along the route.
Entertainment and a fireworks finale at the Margaret Mahy Family Playground.
Dress up warm!
Parade departs Cathedral Square at 5.30pm sharp.
There are road closures to watch out for in to the central city.
Roads will reopen once the parade has passed through. Please be aware of traffic when leaving Margaret Mahy Familly Playground after the parade. Armagh Street between Manchester and Madras will remain closed from 4.30pm - 7.30pm.
Please see the route map in the event images for more information.
