The magic of Christmas is coming to Parnell.

Once again, Heard Park will be bringing the holiday cheer this season with the giant Christmas bauble, but this year, with a whole new array of lighting effects.

There will be a new addition of lights running down the bauble, displaying a range of new effects, including a “Gesture Sensor” so you can move, dance or wave to change the colours.

The interactive light display provides the ideal activity for the whole family enjoy in Auckland’s favourite city fringe suburb.

Heard Park provides the ideal location to get your annual Christmas family photo or the perfect snap with friends for Instagram.

On select Friday nights in December we will have a live roaming saxophonist jazzing up the park with Christmas songs for the kids to dance along to.

To finish the Christmas season, join us at Holy Trinity Cathedral on 17 December for Carols on the Forecourt to hear from the Cathedral choir and maybe catch an appearance from Santa himself.

We invite everyone to experience the Christmas cheer and joy in Parnell as we head into a wonderful new year. Don’t forget to share your photos to share the magic.

Merry Christmas.

Live music in Heard Park will occur on 3 & 10 December 2021.

Carols in the Forecourt at Holy Trinity Cathedral is on 17 December 2021.
