It’s that time of year again! With Christmas just around the corner, there is no better way to get into the Christmas Spirit than joining in on the festivities at the Credit Union Christmas Pageant. At 9:30am on Saturday 10 November, the whistle will blow to signal the beginning of the 2018 Credit Union Christmas Pageant- the 86th year of the Pageant!
Marked as one of the most iconic events on the South Australian calendar, thousands of people from near and far line the city streets to welcome Father Christmas to Adelaide. There are over 172 bright and colourful sets to feast your eyes on, including, floats, bands, dancers and clowns.
The Credit Union Christmas Pageant starts at the corner of King William Street and South Terrace in Adelaide and weaves its way through the city hitting Victoria Square, Wakefield Street, Pulteney Street and Grenfell Street before delivering Father Christmas to the Magic Cave at David Jones on North Terrace. Be sure to arrive early to snag a spot in the front row on any streets marked on the Pageant route!
