Stars at the Lake - All are welcome to enjoy this community festival which is held on the lakefront of Henley Lake, Masterton.

The evening celebrates the Māori New Year, this is a winter celebration, with food available for purchase (yes! we have a coffee cart or two for them hot winter drinks), free entertainment, bouncy castles, free photo booth, ta moko stamps, spot prizes and so much more!

This amazing event will give families have an opportunity to learn and participate in activities to learn more about Matariki.

A highlight about this year, is our Maumahara (Remembrance) lanterns. You can decorate or put messages on your lantern to celebrate the past year or write your tributes to those loved ones who are no longer here with us. Then together we will hold a ceremony where you can light your lantern to float on the lake. (Lantern bases are recyclable).

Bring your seat, blanket, come and enjoy an evening under the stars at Henley Lake. Don't worry there is plenty of parking available from the Colombo Road entrance. But wrap up warm!

Please note this is a non-alcoholic event.
