Part of the Matariki Festival ’13. For full event listings visit

Enjoy this wonderful family experience, featuring a community picnic, lantern competition and parade, storytelling and stargazing.
Local households, schools and early childhood centres are encouraged to create a lantern to bring to the event that is inspired by Matariki, Māori stories, or the natural environment of Hobsonville Point.

Matariki Night Sky begins with storytelling (spoken word, poems or performance) while attendees enjoy their picnic dinner. As the day draws to an end and the light begins to fade, the lantern makers will parade their art while music plays in the background. There will be a small award ceremony for the best lantern from each age group.
Once darkness has fallen, guided by a professional astronomer attendees will look to the sky and learn about the stars above.

This event will be outdoors and attendees are encouraged to dress warmly and bring a blanket. If it rains, the event will be moved inside to the Sunderland Lounge.

Presented by Hobsonville Point.
Supported by AV Jennings.
