Adelaide Christmas Pageant today :)

The Adelaide Christmas Pageant is a long-standing tradition.

here is some information from the Pageant website

At 9:30am on Saturday 12 November, the whistle will blow to signal the beginning of the 2016 Credit Union Christmas Pageant!

People of all ages gather along Adelaide's streets each November to welcome the Credit Union Christmas Pageant to town. It's the traditional start to the festive season in South Australia, with more than 320,000 happy faces lining the 3.3 kilometre route.

Over 172 bright and colourful sets, including floats, bands, dancers and clowns will entertain thousands of people, culminating in the arrival of Father Christmas himself in Adelaide.

The Pageant begins on South Terrace at the corner of King William Street, and meanders through the city to finish on North Terrace at approximately 11:40am.

You can view and download a copy of the route map here.

The Credit Union Christmas Pageant is traditionally held on the second Saturday of November, unless that day falls on Remembrance Day.

Our President, Allan Griffin, is the photography team leader, with PACC Members Bec Lundberg, Stephen Muller, Jason Hywood, Grant Allen and Paula McManus on the team as well.

If you are at the Pageant today, keep a look out for them (they are easily identified by what they are wearing) and give them a wave!
