This July 19, Matariki in the Zone is back.

There will be live music and dancing. We'll have activities for kids big and small - rock-painting, wood-carving, flax-weaving, marshmallow-toasting and more.

The delicious hāngi will be raised at 4.30pm. It will be served alongside a boil-up, vegetable soup, fried bread, hot chocolate and booze-free mulled wine. Coffee Skills Mobile will be there too, and a sausage sizzle.

The Light Fantastic River Bike Ride will be back at 6pm, and star-gazing in the nearby red zone. As the sun goes down, the lights will come up.

It's going to be a brilliant day out - and you're invited.
