Festive fun at GLO
Rotorua is gearing up for a busy festive season, but families and friends can relax while celebrating the end of the year at the Rotorua GLO Festival.
A family favourite on the Rotorua event calendar, GLO Festival starts at 4.30pm on December 31 with the multi award-winning animated Disney feature Coco — voted by the Rotorua public as their movie choice for the night.
That will be followed by a line-up of local entertainment, including music students from Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology, 2018 Miss Rotorua contestants, a children’s disco, DJ Pete Makiha and music from Remaster and the Geyser Chiefs.
The evening will finish with a spectacular 15-minute fireworks display at 9.30pm on the lakefront.
A range of food will also be available from mobile food vendors and Mahon’s Amusements will be right next door with a range of entertainment.
To ensure everyone has a great night the evening is family friendly, with the event being smoke-free and alcohol-free.
People are asked to just bring picnic blankets and chairs — no gazebos or tents — to ensure everyone has a great view of the movie and stage.
