Rotorua starts its month-long Matariki celebrations with a parade of lanterns through the city centre on the 16 June.

The parade will wind its way from the Rotorua Arts Village to collect specially crafted 'stars' along the way with each of them representing the 9 personalities of the Matariki Star cluster and each one as bright as the next!

Finishing at the Lakefront Rotorua with on-stage entertainment from our super talented Star Search contestants and a spectacular fireworks display to celebrate Matariki, and the Maori New Year.

Be part of the parade and join in the fun by making your own bright 'star' or lanterns at the parade art session each week, or by decorating your bikes and putting on a costume to walk with us in the parade - there will be lots of fun, colour, noise and stars.

If you would like to walk with us in the parade, then please meet us at the Arts Village at 6pm. Dress up in lights, costumes, lanterns and your own special creations to show off the community spirit of Matariki!
