Lanterns on the Awa
A community event to celebrate Whanganui’s continual support of Chinese and other Asian cultures.

Held in the carpark area beside the Tram Shed / Whanganui Riverside Market areas, the event includes a stage for performers – traditional dance, music, martial arts, traditional Chinese hanging lanterns and the culturally significant gesture of releasing wax-coated floating lanterns (candles) on our Whanganui River.

Food and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available to purchase.

A night of exciting cultural entertainment and magical family time.
