Rotorua East Lions Club and Hits 97.5 will be holding Carols by Candlelight again this year. It will be an enjoyable celebration of Christmas for families and children under the trees in Kuirau Park.
The entertainment, compered by Radio host Paul Hickey, will commence at 7.30pm with an overture from the Rotorua Symphonic Band, This will be followed by carol singing, Christmas music from choir and soloists, dance and children’s entertainment.
Song sheets will be published in the preceding edition of the Rotorua Weekender. Candles and holders will be available at the venue for a gold coin donation, or you can bring your own. Proceeds from the candle sales will be donated to the Rotorua Hospital Chaplaincy Trust.
Bring a chair or a rug, and warm clothing and come early to make sure you get near the action. There will be hot and cold food and coffee vendors on-site or you can bring your own picnic.
It will be dark enough for the full effect of the candlelight to be experienced by 8.50, and the show will end at around 9.15 pm.
In wet weather, the event will be moved to the Redwood “Sails” behind the Information Centre on the Long Mile Road. Candles will be prohibited but light sticks will be available. The announcement of the move will be advertised by Hits Radio 97.5 FM.
