Fireworks warmed Lyttelton's midwinter sky during the port town's Matariki street party.

London St transformed for Maori New Year celebrations last night, which involved pupils from the town's newly- merged Lyttelton Primary School.

The street party, a highlight of the Lyttelton Harbour Festival of Lights, featured music from The Eastern, Lindon Puffin, Devilish Mary and the Holy Rollers, Runaround Sue and Mundi.

Today you can browse the mid-winter Christmas market from 10am to 1pm, head to the quiz at the Lyttelton Club from 7pm or see the Kiwi movie classic Goodbye Pork Pie at 6 London St.

On Sunday Helen Taylor's solo exhibition opens from 3pm to 5pm at the award-winning Roots Restaurant. See lyttelton.net.nz.
