Not just for couples - Wellington’s puts on a Valentine’s Day for everyone!
Valentine’s Day evening in 1995 was a marvellous affair where everyone could enjoy the festivities. On show at the waterfront was an Absolutely Positively Wellington air balloon, a trio of string musicians and a spontaneous recital of the famous balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet. For the romantics, a selection of flowers was on sale and local bars served Valentine’s Day themed drinks and nibbles.
