A community Christmas event in Bethlehem, Tauranga - a special place to Celebrate Christmas.
Bethlehem's version of Christmas in the Park, this event celebrates it's 20th anniversary in 2016.
This year, we welcome back "Late 80's Mercedes" a 10 piece swing, funk, pop band who were a major hit at last year's event. You won't want to miss them - or forget your dancing shoes!
A host of other performers will take the massive Puffer Cover stage featuring all genres of music as well as dance, choir, comedy and drama - including some of the Bay's up-and-coming young performers.
Grab your picnic or buy food from the Vendors on site - and get along early to get your space. With a focus on singing Carols by Candlelight and profiling the traditional Christmas Story, this much-loved event is planned for Saturday 17th December - but there is a wet weather contingency date and option confirmed for Sunday 18 December.
The picturesque front fields on the Bethlehem College Campus will be the place to be to herald in the week of Christmas with entertainment, food, bouncy castles, giveaways, a collection taken for "Good Neighbour Trust" - ending with fantastic fireworks.
