Tremains Christmas Lights

The Tremains Christmas Lights extravaganza is a firm favourite on the calendars of the Hawke’s Bay community each December.

Homes, gardens, shops and buildings are transformed into Christmas wonderlands, decorated with magical light displays to celebrate the festive season. These displays and the joy they bring to the community, particularly the children, are reasons enough for Tremains, The Hits, Branded and Hawke's Bay Today to continue supporting the event each year.

In 2018, we are excited to anounce the addition of a beginners category. This categry is for the casual decorators just starting out their christmas lights careers, and wanting to get involved in the Tremains Christmas Lights. They will have the opportunity to win Christmas hams, and lights, just as the open category.

So get those lights out, and brighten up the Hawke's Bay this Christmas.

Registrations for the Christmas Lights are now closed.
