The celebrations begin with a sprinkling of sleep dust as you make your way up the hill to the Centre of New Zealand. Along the track you will discover ethereal installations and surreal performances. Once at the top of the hill, listen to the band, watch the sun set and join in the lantern-lighting ceremony.

Then it’s time to sleepwalk back down the hill to bed. Use your lanterns to light your way, bringing to life the wonders that the night offers.

Get creating and make yourself a homemade lantern. Remember to use a battery powered light to avoid fire risk.

Bring a picnic and warm clothing. Children under 13 must be supervised by an adult.

If wet, the event will be rescheduled to Sun 17 Dec. Check here and the ‘summerinnelson’ Facebook page for updates.
