First Credit Union Christmas Tree

New Zealand's biggest and most beautiful Christmas Tree lights have been turned on!

It’s 27 metres tall to the tip of the star. That’s over 6 stories high. It takes a team of 15 people to install the frame and the lighting, fluff the branches and hang the baubles. This tree is huge!

The tree dominates Garden Place once again in 2022. Hamiltonians can expect to see the tree light up towards the end of November along with some new daytime decor” he said. The tree will light nightly through to early January.

Unfortunately, the First Credit Union Christmas Parade and the Hamilton Christmas Tree Concert have been cancelled.
