lantern festival

Visiting the local lantern festival each year is hugely enjoying. To mark the end of Chinese new year celebrations Christchurch’s Chinese community transforms Victoria Square with lanterns, mixed with live dance and music and stalls, for two nights in March. Once darkness falls the place is lit with enchantment, and perhaps an even greater magic in the hundreds and hundreds of the city’s citizens who come to meet, wander and marvel at the display. The numbers of people who throng to the festival in such good humour provides one of the best affirmations of the things Christchurch does well and make this a pleasing place to live in spite of our city’s smallness.
