The iconic Wellington event will be held on Saturday 3 December and will feature a uniquely Lower Hutt feel while incorporating features that have made the event a household name in Wellington City.
Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace is excited about bringing Carols by Candlelight to the city for the first time and is looking forward to seeing the Hutt Rec come alive with Christmas spirit.
“Carols by Candlelight is a well known, fantastic family event, and we are privileged to be able to host it for 2011 right here in Lower Hutt,” he says.
