Hamilton’s Christmas Tree
In 2022 Showing Waikato organised the Hamilton Christmas Tree Lighting Concert on behalf of the Hamilton Christmas Charitable Trust – which was unfortunately cancelled the week of due to severe weather. However, this event was set to have had performances, food trucks, tree lighting countdown, and even an appearance from Santa himself!
Preparation for this event also included constructing of the 27-foot Christmas Tree, that stands in Garden Place from late November until early January and lights up every night at 9pm.
Build of this entailed: communicating with contractors and volunteers, traffic management, and everything in between.
Showing Waikato created a special Christmas video with local videographer Isaac Lyons
