On the 9th of July 2017 (local time), the Confucius Institute at the University of Canterbury (CIUC) was invited to participate in th KidsFest Lantern Parade in Christchurch. CIUC staff taught the children to make handmade lanterns, and many children waited in a long queue in order to purchase the lanterns.

The children walked along the parade route with their lanterns, starting in Cathedral Square and finishing at the Margaret Mahy Playground.

Kids Fest is a Christchurch festival for children that takes place in the school mid-year term break. This is the third time that CIUC was invited to participate in the celebration.
