The Big Night Out - it's definitely on tonight!!!

With the weather set to hold for tonight, organisers of The Big Night Out are confident the New Year's Eve party in Wellington's Civic Square will draw the expected crowd of 8000.

"Yesterday's heavy rain has lifted - the show will go on!" says City Council Events Marketing Co-ordinator Jessica Garland. "The Big Night Out has never been cancelled in its 25-year history and with the weather forecast looking up, it looks tonight will be another fantastic free outdoor celebration of New Year's Eve."

Tonight's festivities start from 8pm with face-painting and entertainment for kids. The musical entertainment kicks off at 8.30pm with Wellington's favourite drag artiste, Pollyfilla, followed by legendary swing and jazz dance band The Vipers. The party atmosphere continues with That 80s Band who are more than a blast from the past - they're an explosion!

The Big Night Out is the first event in a line-up of over 100 free outdoor events in Meridian Energy Summer City over the months of January and February.
