Celebrate winter with a bang! The second annual Petone Winter Carnival is a major one-day festival celebrating the very best of winter on the iconic Petone foreshore.

The carnival will feature an eclectic programme of free live music, visual arts, daring circus acts, fun-filled family activities and the spectacular finale – the annual Pelorus Trust Fireshow – along the Petone foreshore Saturday the 18th of July from 2pm to 7:30pm. What better way to cap off an exciting day of Carnival activities than witnessing Petone’s very own fireworks show from the beach.

We recommend grabbing a bite to eat, before or after the show.  Local restaurants and cafes are going to be open early for the event.  How about trying the new Malaysian restaurant, the Palms or Wellingtonista favourite, Gusto.
