Paeroa's historical Maritime Park turns into a magical wonderland during December. Bring the family to experience the brilliant light show, on every night from Dec through to Christmas eve. This is a community based project, designed to spread Christmas cheer throughout the Paeroa region, run by Paeroa volunteers. The park is open to the public to enjoy trees lit up with magical fairy lights and buildings of the Museum will be outlined by amazing lights. This is the first show in New Zealand, of this scale, that actually has lights dancing to music.
The show runs continuously from 8:30 pm till 10 pm, every night, weather permitting.
Come along to this years show and meander through the Enchanted Forest and watch children playing in the snow and bubbles, as music soothes and enriches the soul. This is a great night out not to be missed. There are sure to be some wonderful surprises in store for this years show.
8.30pm – Last entry 10.00pm every night. Event closes at 11.00pm.
No dogs except service dogs permitted.
There’s plenty of parking, but please do not park on the main road. To find your way to park right beside the entrance to the Light Show, turn on to Hubbard Road and follow the signs that will lead you down Ngahina Wharf (below the Puke bridge) and right to our doorstep.
