Photo shows a young girl toasting a marshmallow over an open fire.

A bonfire big enough to spot from Te Motu o Poutoa, smaller bonfires for marshmallow roasting, food trucks and DJs are sure to make this a cosy one for you to hang out on Ahimate Beach. Bring a deckchair, torch, and you'll be well set!

Brought, to you by Rangitāne o Manawatū and Palmerston North City Council, explore Ahimate at night with lanterns and light forests.

Entertainment and food truck list to come!
