Celebrate Matariki with a lantern-lit family night walk beside the Styx in partnership with the Styx Living Laboratory Trust and CCC.

Explore one of Christchurch’s newest parks by night at this family event. Darkness transforms the natural world into a different place. Your guides will point out the special features and creatures that reveal themselves only under the cover of night.

The walk will take about 45 minutes and is suitable for pushchairs. We will finish with a hot chocolate; a gold coin donation to the Styx Living Laboratory Trust would be appreciated.

Dress warm with sturdy footwear. We encourage you to wear dark, non-rustling clothes – the magic comes alive if we are quiet!

Bring your own handmade lantern or a torch.

You can make your own tea light lanterns by attaching string or wire to a jam jar to make a handle. Decorate the jar with coloured tissue paper. Or go to http://www.kidsfest.co.nz/lantern-making/ for more instructions to make your own lantern.

Numbers limited to 50
