Kite Day

Sat 30 January

1.30pm – 4.30pm

New Brighton Beach, South of the Pier


Spectacular kites of all varieties and sizes will flutter and soar over New Brighton beach, delighting children and adults alike.

Kite makers from around New Zealand and the world travel to partake in this popular event. Create and decorate your own kite or buy one from The Kite Shop on the day and fly it on the steady sea breeze. If you don’t have a kite sit back, relax and watch while enjoying an ice cream, cool drink or fish and chips for tea on the beach. The New Brighton Silver Band will perform on the promenade.

Catch a bus to avoid parking hassles or car-pool with friends and family. Don't forget to slip, slop, slap!

This event is part of the Christchurch City Council's Smokefree policy at events. Please respect the people around you and refrain from smoking.
