WATCH: Wellington open for Christmas

CHRISTMAS in Wellington has officially begun with the lighting of the Courtney Place Christmas tree last night.

Families and friends gathered in Courtney Place Park as the Wellington Brass Band filled the air with Christmas spirit.

Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown thanked those who put together the decorations and festivities for Christmas in Wellington this year, including the ratepayers.

“I’d also like to say thank you to the ratepayers, because it’s your money that buys the tree, alas it is not Father Christmas.”

After complaints last year over the lack of decorations, Wellington City Council has placed two trees in Wellington, as well as decorations throughout the city.

The crowd counted down from 10 and the tree was lit up just before 9pm.
