By Tristan Hooker/MediaPA

There are plenty of great reasons to be in Hamilton this Christmas. Whether you’re passing through on your way to your destination, or whether you are joining an increasing number of download-1-4holidaymakers making Hamilton their destination, Hamilton accommodation provider Stadium Motel has recommendations to make your stay one to remember.

Stadium Motel is centrally located, within easy access to the sights of the city and right across the road from FMG Stadium Waikato and Willoughby Park.

Here are Stadium Motel’s top three tips for things to see and do in Hamilton this Christmas:

New Zealand’s Biggest Christmas Tree
At 27 metres tall with 186,100 lights, the Hamilton Christmas tree, located in Garden Place will light up the nights throughout December until the New Year.

The tree will dominate Garden Place once again in 2016 and be a great focal point for the community to gather, watch, perform and celebrate the festive season.

Make a donation to Hospice Waikato and get a memory star to hang on the tree to remember a loved one at Christmas. Stars are available from Coffee Post, Ground Floor of Sky City opposite Garden Place

Christmas at the Lake
Christmas at the Lake is free to attend and everyone is welcome. Held on Saturday 17 December at 6pm, Innes Common, Hamilton Lake, this family-friendly festival features three live bands: Samantha Toner-Green, Rootz Konekt and The Latest Fallout; five dance troups: Mongolian, Chinese, Middle Eastern and Hip Hop; Brazilian drums; Gourmet food stalls, free face painting, bouncy castles, mini jeep rides and, of course, Santa Claus.

Visitors are welcome to show up and view the beautiful display of over 150,000 Christmas lights on the Hamilton Mormon Temple grounds, at 509 Tuhikaramea Road.
