Sky Show Fireworks
Every year, Wellington's Sky Show illuminates the sky over Wellington harbour in a beautiful fireworks display.
This wonderful fireworks show is synchronised with soundtracks on local radio stations. Food vendors and family entertainment along the waterfront add to a carnival atmosphere.
For the first time in 2013, the fireworks display was held on the Saturday 9 November, rather than the traditional date of 5 November. We trialled this change after receiving requests from the public for a more family-friendly time.
Before and during the event there are traffic restrictions in place. Due to the the number of people who attend this popular event, we always recommend that you catch the bus or train into town to avoid traffic jams.
The Metservice streams the event live.
The Wellington Sky Show, organised and paid for by the Council with the support of sponsors, has been an annual highlight since 1995.
