SPECTACULAR FIREWORKS AT LYTTELTON PORT FRIDAY NIGHT (29 June)

For the last ten years Lyttelton Port Company (LPC) has enjoyed being part of Lyttelton’s mid-winter celebration, the Festival of Lights, and the Company is again sponsoring the spectacular fireworks display which will start at 8pm this Friday 29 June.

The fireworks will last about ten minutes and feature more than 200 individual fireworks, including star shells, salutes, single-shot mines and multi-shot mines.

“The fireworks display is always a highlight of the Festival, enjoyed by about 10,000 people from Lyttelton, the Harbour Basin and visitors from Christchurch,” said LPC Chief Executive Peter Davie. “LPC is pleased it can contribute to the Festival as part of our ongoing support for, and engagement with, the community in which we operate.”

“We have 200 of our staff and their families coming to watch the fireworks from our new Operations and Administration building, Waterfront House, which has an outstanding view of the Inner Harbour where the fireworks will be.

“It’s a great way for us to celebrate our new facility, show our families the new environment in which we work, and enjoy the fireworks.

“As well, we are giving the Lyttelton Primary School use of our Information Centre ‘Port Talk’, on the corner of Oxford and London Streets, to display artworks by their pupils during the Festival night.

“Lyttelton Primary School has teamed up with University of Auckland microbiologist and 2018 New Zealand of the Year Nominee Dr Siouxsie Wiles for the pupils to create extraordinary ‘glow in the dark’ art works in petri dishes from bioluminescent bacteria. They will be displayed on the walls at Port Talk.
