What's happening in Riccarton, and where to find it

Riccarton Street Party

Riccarton street party 2

When Riccarton Community Church wanted to give people in the area something to look forward, it decided to put on a street party.

That was nine years ago, and the party has been a roaring success ever since. Thousands turn out each year to enjoy the free entertainment and food, and the opportunity to get to know their neighbours a bit better.

This year's party will be on Sunday, 5th November, running from 11am to 1pm.

There'll be a live stage show, free food, face painting, prizes, pony rides, petting zoo, Devonshire teas, free clothing and toys, market stalls and more.

Just roll up to Elizabeth Street, near Division Street, to enjoy the day's fun.

Paeroa Reserve spruce up

Community art makes Riccarton intersection beautiful

An ordinary Christchurch intersection has been transformed into something beautiful, an initiative which could spread throughout the city.

Riccarton locals spent the weekend turning the Shand Cres and Tara St intersection into a work of art.
