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 mid 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. Head 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.
