Each year Christchurch City Libraries hosts a Photo Hunt to encourage people to share their photographs and stories of Canterbury.
It is running throughout October from Saturday 1st to Monday 31st and the theme for this year is Our Stories: Milestones and Moments.
Ōtautahi-Christchurch has had some fantastic public events such as the New Zealand International Exhibition, 1974 Commonwealth Games, Lady Wigram car races and the more recent International Buskers Festival. The types of public events vary but they do bring the community together whether it is a performance, some delicious kai or even a protest. The public events that have occurred over the years have become some of the key moments in Christchurch’s history.
Share your photographs of public events that you enjoyed and contribute in this year’s Photo Hunt.
