Hundreds of people gathered at the Dinosaur Park in Wanaka on Saturday afternoon to celebrate Matariki, or Maori New Year.

This year’s event included workshops, a community hangi, fireworks, a bonfire and cultural and community performances, including this one from pupils of Hawea Flat School.

Clear blue skies and calm conditions meant the celebrations went off without a hitch and were thoroughly enjoyed by all.
