Thousands of people descended on Thomson Park to show their love for a coastal Christchurch suburb on Waitangi Day.

More than 30 community groups showcased what they do through activities, including sports, circus tricks and a police speed gun, at the 10th annual I Love New Brighton festival.

The main stage featured a kapa haka performance to kick the festival off and the Natural Magic Pirates and the band Hypnumb also drew in a crowd.

It was the first year the event had been held since Thomson Park was upgraded with a new basketball court.

The festival was funded by local businesses and the Coastal-Burwood Community Board.
