Kiwi community BBQ to end summer

Lyttelton SummerFest offers a traditional kiwi hang out, the afternoon and evening of March 5th at The Grassy. Bring the whanau, some kai BBQ posterand your togs. With DJ's, games, a bouncy castle, local beers and the pool just next door, The Big Whakaraupo Lyttelton Community Barbeque on the Grassy is going to be a relaxing and fun community event for everyone.

Come down and enjoy your favourite BBQ food with friends and neighbours. BBQs will be provided (including a vegetarian-only BBQ) for you to cook on and we will be selling delicious and refreshing Cassels & Sons and Eruption beers at the bar as well as a selection of wines. There will be no BYO at this event.

Thanks to our wonderful team of TimeBank volunteer lifeguards, the pool will be open during the afternoon. Entry is by koha and money raised will go towards the running of the Lyttelton Harbour TimeBank.

Music will be provided by local DJs JB Revivalist, Scotty Rotten, Jules Marchant, Emily Sultan and Ros Dixon.

Ferrymead Heritage Park will be running traditional games for all ages.
