Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park

Television (Full Length) – 2000

Every year around Christmas time, the Auckland Domain is lit up for a star-filled night of free Christmas celebrations. Hosted by Jay Laga’aia, this 2000 edition of the concert has “more than 300,000 people” gathered for an evening of songs, carols and fireworks. Kicking off with a Christmas rap from Anthony Ray Parker and kids, the celebrations go long into the night. Stepping up to the mic are everyone from Tina Cross, Frankie Stevens and Ainslie Allen, to the cast of Shortland Street and Mai Time. The evening is capped off with a fireworks display and the arrival of Santa Claus.

Picture if you will, close your eyes ladies and gentlemen, as we paddle our melodic canoe through the Christmas breakwaters. We are guided by the star, and this next chant. Mele Kalikimaka sprinkles a bit of colour and culture over our Christmas tree.
