Victoria Park closed to public for Christmas Celebration Night

Rangiora's Victoria Park will be closed to the public on Thursday 24 November between 5pm and 10pm as preparations are made for the Christmas Celebration Night in the town centre.

Victoria Park is being used as a discharge area for the Grand Fireworks Finale of the event which is scheduled to light up the skies at 9pm. For everyone's safety, we ask people to stay away from the park during the closure period. The public toilets will be accessible from Percival Street.

Organised by Rangiora Promotions Association, there will be many festivities the community can enjoy as well as the fireworks display. Take your children to the Kid's Patch for some energetic fun, visit the Gables Arcade for a photo with Santa, stroll through the Christmas Garden while listening to live music, visit the market stalls, or do some Christmas shopping at the High Street shops until 9pm.

Parts of High Street, Durham Street, Percival Street and Victoria Street will be temporarily closed between 3pm and 10.30pm. A free festival bus will be operating to help with parking worries. Starting from Ashley Street, the bus will depart from 5pm and every half hour until 9.30pm.
