Rain doesn’t keep crowds from event

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Rain did noth­ing to dampen the spir­its of thou­sands of peo­ple who turned out for the 21st Coca-Cola Christ­mas in the Park event at Auck­land Do­main on Satur­day night.

The event is sup­ported by Fair­fax Me­dia, pub­lisher of this news­pa­per.

‘‘It cer­tainly was an evening to re­mem­ber,’’ Fair­fax Me­dia north­ern re­gion gen­eral man­ager David Penny says. ‘‘ And the weather sit­u­a­tion just goes to show how much Auck­lan­ders love this event. They cer­tainly weren’t go­ing to let it spoil their night.’’

This year’s show fea­tured a star stud­ded cast in­clud­ing the broth­er­sis­ter mu­sic sen­sa­tion Broods.

Pro­ceeds from mer­chan­dise sales and do­na­tions col­lected dur­ing the evening will go to Youth­line.
