Lyttelton SummerFest is a ten-day festival that kicks off on Waitangi Day with the latest incarnation of the popular One Love festival: One Love Waitangi Day Sound System at Albion Square.
One of the big events for families is The Big Pirate Picnic Beach Party:
The beloved Natural Magic Pirate Band will entertain including "Lyttelton's Got Talent", parachute games and music. Bouncy castle, ice creams and sausage sizzle. Piratical yum and fun!
