Carols in the Park 2023

Come along to Carols in the Park, 16 December to join us in FREE activities for the whole whanau.

***Due to the weather the event will be held inside at Te Rauparaha Arena***

Get together with whānau and friends, bring a picnic and enjoy an outdoor celebration in the lead-up to Christmas.

There will be kids entertainers about, and Nick Tansley will play Christmas carols to get you in the festive spirit. There will be plenty of space for dancing near the stage, or you can show off your vocal talents in the crowd – or just relax and enjoy a picnic dinner.

A couple of food trucks will be on hand so you can buy something tasty if you prefer.

If the weather doesn’t come to the party, we’ll move the event inside Te Rauparaha Arena.
