This New Year’s Eve, Picton waterfront and marina will be buzzing with excitement as we count down to 2017. Marlborough’s only official New Years Party is happening right here!
There will be great local music playing on the stage by the town wharf at Picton Marina, children’s entertainment including inflatables along the foreshore, face painting, Circus training with balloon twisting workshops and games. The family entertainment begins at 7pm along London Quay, and ends with a huge fireworks display at midnight.
This brilliant Marlborough celebration is brought to us by Marlborough 4 Fun, and is proudly sponsored by Port Marlborough, Marlborough District Council and supported by Interislander.
