Indian-Māori fusion at Christchurch Holi Festival of Colours 2019
We are proud to be involved in the 2019 Christchurch Holi Festival of Colours!
This year’s event will focus on cultural unity in the lead up to Waitangi Day, and will feature contemporary Indian and Māori performances, as well as New Zealand’s first aerial flower petal drop.
The Christchurch Holi Festival of Colours will be held on Saturday, 2 February 2019 in North Hagley Park from 10am – 4pm; with the life-saving Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service nominated as Charity of Choice.
A spectacular aerial flower petal drop will take place during the event, with petals of two different colours to be released from a helicopter to signify the friendship and harmony between New Zealand and India, and to highlight the event’s charitable focus this year. Holi’s organisers have partnered with the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service in 2019, with proceeds to be generated through an optional gold coin koha at the event entry.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service provides a vital safety net for our local communities. “We rely on the generosity of the community to continue our life-saving work,” says Rick Knight, Crew Chief of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Your gold coin donation will help save lives this busy summer period.
