Spring River Festival Inanga Heke, Sat 25 Oct 2-6pm

Avon-Ōtākaro Network

Meet at New Brighton’s clocktower

Saturday 25 October, 2-6pm

The Spring River Festival, brought to FESTA by the Avon-Ōtākaro Network, celebrated the inanga heke (whitebait migration) by following the river upstream from New Brighton to the city for CityUps in the evening. Approximately 40 people participated in the journey and joined in along the way at various points on foot, bike or kayak. Those who came heard stories of the river and their  silver inanga streamers could be seen in crowds at CityUps later that night.
