HighLight would not be possible without the generous contributions of our partners and suppliers.



The Breeze Wellington is Wellington's Live and Local station – keeping you up to date with everything Wellington.

Steve and Kath from The Breeze Breakfast are both from the Hutt, their kids go to school there, they do their shopping their and they are active in the community. They love the Hutt and are thrilled to be able to support the very first HighLight: Carnival of lights.


Hiremaster is proud to have been helping make events a success in the Wellington region and all around New Zealand. The company has been operating as Hiremaster for the past 30 years with the owner Colin Taylor still at the helm as he has been for the past 52 years.

Through their unmatched event and party experience, they provide solutions for all their customers' event requirements. They offer hiring of an extensive range of high-quality event and marquee equipment, and provide strategic, operational and logistical expertise for successful events.

Coming on-board with Highlight in 2017 was a no-brainer for the team who love to get behind community initiatives and are never far from community events. This year they are proudly presenting the Hiremaster Fire and Light Show which kicks off each night of the carnival at 9.30pm.


Macaulay Metals is New Zealand’s largest privately owned scrap metal recycling business.

They are big but have the values of an independent, Kiwi owned family company. They have branches in several locations across New Zealand employing over 100 people who work hard to provide excellent customer service based on honesty, fairness and integrity. These are true Kiwi values which as your local scrap metal recycling company they are proud to offer.

Macaulay Metals enjoys supporting the local communities where they have yards, which includes co-operating with local councils. For them, being a corporate sponsor of Highlight is a perfect way to help a worthy charity and the Lower Hutt and greater Wellington communities all in one go.


Mitre 10 Mega Petone, Upper Hutt and Porirua owners Martyn and Joanne Lockyer have a real customer and community focus. Being 100% locally owned and operated has enabled the couple to continually develop their stores to meet the changing needs of their community along with current trends in building, landscaping & design.

Mitre 10 MEGA Petone is proud to get behind this inaugural event. They’ll be easy to spot at the MEGA ILLUM-IN-AIRE installation where an aerial performance artist will captivate the crowd from within a huge inflated lightbulb.

This is just another way that Mitre 10 MEGA Petone has got right behind a local event where the community can come out and play. Visit them to trade a gold coin for a glow stick, with all proceeds going towards the official charity of the event – Alzheimers Wellington.


For approximately the past 20 years Professionals have been the top Real Estate sales team in Lower Hutt. Professionals have been involved with too many community events and initiatives to count, and once again they are thrilled to be a part of an event that is going to bring so much joy to the people of Lower Hutt.

Whilst Professionals have raised over 4 million dollars for their charity partner the Child Cancer Foundation, they are more than happy to help raise funds and awareness for the people at Alzheimers Wellington at this event.


Ryman Healthcare is New Zealand’s largest retirement village operator. Ryman has 31 villages in New Zealand and Australia, including Shona McFarlane Retirement Village in Lower Hutt and Bob Scott Retirement Village in Petone.
