Lower Hutt CBD celebrates Christmas with the ‘Light up the Hutt’ competition

Shop windows in Lower Hutt are showing Christmas spirit with 29 different businesses being part of the ‘Light up the Hutt’ competition.

The 29 window displays show a vast array of different decorating choices – from snowmen to high fashion, Santa to tinsel and even a Zebra!

CBD Development Manager Cyndi Christensen is enthusiastic about the competition.

“I enjoy seeing what the different businesses come up with and how the community reacts.

“With more people in the Lower Hutt CBD shopping, dining and playing we’re guaranteed that this competition will get bigger every year.
