One of the major Christmas events in Auckland and Christchurch is the annual Christmas in the Park concert. These are the biggest outdoor Christmas concerts in the country and feature some of the best local musicians, dancers and entertainers. It is always a great event for the whole family and a fun way to escape from the Christmas rush and enjoy a summer evening and relaxation and fun.
They are held at the cities' two largest central parks, the Domain in Auckland and Hagley Park in Christchurch. The concerts have been held each December for many years and attract tens of thousands of people. There is no cost for admission although a coin donation is accepted in support of a local charity.
It's one of the many things to enjoy about a summer Christmas in New Zealand. For more information see:
