COVID UPDATE - Due to the recent change to the COVID Red Protection Framework setting across New Zealand, we are no longer able to hold the annual Earthquake Commemoration public service.
To ensure public safety, while also adhering to the Red setting restrictions this year’s commemoration will be a closed ceremony, not open to the public.
We will resume with a public event in 2023.
Hastings District Council will be holding the Earthquake Commemoration Ceremony on Thursday 3 February. This special ceremony is open to the general public and held at the Hastings City Centre Mall to remember the day that changed lives in Hastings and wider Hawke's Bay, and to celebrate the city and community around us.
Stories of how the event reshaped Hastings are told and wreaths are laid at the clock tower in memory of the lives lost in the earthquake. The service starts at 10:30am, with the clock tower bells ringing at 10.47, the exact time the quake struck our region.
Thursday 3 February, 10:30am to 11:30pm
Restrictions: All Ages
Hastings Clock Tower, Hastings, Hawke's Bay / Gisborne
