Tauranga New Year’s Eve Community celebrations cancelled.

Given the changing COVID-19 environment we are unfortunately not able to host New Year’s Eve Community celebrations and fireworks this year in Tauranga.

This has been a difficult decision to make, but we feel there is too much uncertainty around whether we can deliver the community events safely. We love bringing these events and fireworks to you and we look forward to delivering these celebrations again in 2022

Media Release: Tauranga New Year’s Eve Community celebrations cancelled.
