Organisers of the Festival of Transitional Architecture held in Christchurch this weekend hope moveable infrastructure will continue to be used by Canterbury residents.
The festival, known as FESTA, attracted thousands into the central city over Labour Weekend, showing how empty sites can be used to boost the city's recovery.
Firstline's Emily Cooper says the most popular attraction was the Canterbury Tales carnival, with puppets and performers parading through the streets of the CBD.
An urban farm was also featured in the central city.
