The Lantern Festival has traditionally been part of Chinese New Year celebrations since the Han Dynasty (206 BC-221AD). Usually held on the 15th day of the first month of the lunar calendar, it marks the end of New Year festivities.

The Christchurch Lantern Festival is brought to you by the Christchurch City Council in partnership with Asia New Zealand Foundation.
