Trees ready to glow
The city's new fairy lights, which have been progressively placed on trees in the Main St in recent days, will all be up and shining on Friday evening.
With 15 metres of LED lights for each tree the placing of the lights has taken longer than first thought and with them coming into play with the turning on of the normal street lights locals will have seen them increase in number over the past week.
About 25 trees, from Pine Ave to King St, are being decorated and will operate all year round.
Mark Futter, the city's economic development manager, says the lights will be a spectacular and positive addition to Main St life.
Other feature lights, the traditional show for Christmas, are also in place as will be new city flags and banners reflecting the festive season.
