A condolence book was available for people to leave messages, and many of those in attendance brought candles and flowers.
Meanwhile over 1500 people also gathered on the Lake Wanaka foreshore this evening to remember those lost in Friday's attacks.
Deputy mayor Calum MacLeod led proceedings, encouraging the community to come together as one, while Lake Hawea's Jeremy Van Riel also delivered an emotional karakia.
Dozens of people lit candles, lay flowers, and wrote messages to honour those tragically lost on Friday.
