The official 2011 Credit Union Christmas Pageant DVD goes on sale today "celebrating the clown within" – the theme of this year’s event. 325,000 spectators attended the event and thousands more watched the live telecast.
Credit Union Christmas Pageant Event Manager, Brian Gilbertson, said everyone who purchases a DVD is eligible to enter the competition to win a trip to Kangaroo Island for a family of four thanks to Sealink.
“Each DVD is individually numbered with a unique code. Once purchased, the code just needs to be entered online at www.cupageant.com.au to go into the draw to win. This is a fantastic new initiative for 2011 and an added incentive to purchase your copy now,” said Mr Gilbertson.
The DVD features the entire Channel 9 telecast of the event. Relive all the colour and excitement with the six new floats featured in this year’s parade: Penguins ‘R’ Koool, Hansel & Gretel, Forest Fantasy, Fergus the North Pole Fire Engine, Love, Love Christmas and the mini float the Naughty or Nice Meter.
Credit Union Pageant Company Chair, Peter Evers, is once again thrilled that the partnership with Channel 9 Telethon is continuing.
“The DVD and partnership with Channel 9 Telethon is just another way the event gives back to the community 365 days of the year,” Mr Evers said.
