“This year’s lineup is looking great,” says event organiser David Trim of Kaisen Charitable Trust. “Hollie is such an awesome singer with a great history of wooing crowds throughout New Zealand and the world with her powerful soulful voice. Hollie will be bringing her band as well to create that full live spectacle.”
Loads of local talent including Jack Knife Beat Band and Badger will be warming up the crowd for Hollie, along with the usual Christmas carols and dance performances.
Santa will pop in during the event to check on the state of the children this year. The unique pyrotechnics display, which has become one of the most popular parts of the event will continue. This pyro show was especially created by the Kaisen Charitable Trust for this event, and is considered to be unlike any other in New Zealand, says David. The pyrotechnic show will be at 9.35pm, so please make sure your pets are well taken care of at this time.
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 12 at Mitre 10 Park, Hastings (formerly known as the Regional Sports Park). Support for the event comes from many business sponsorships and from both the Napier City Council and Hastings District Council. The Kaisen Charitable Trust is committed to ensuring this event remains free to enter. “It’s a true community gathering at a time when there is a lot of pressure and stress about. We think it’s good therapy to come and celebrate Christmas as a community and just pause for a few hours,” David says.
