It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas on the Parade!
This Saturday, November 22, around 20,000 people head to Norwood for the 37th Norwood Christmas Pageant.
This year’s Pageant will include a record 106 participating groups, including local schools, community groups and marching bands, with between 4,000 and 5,000 adults and children expected to take part in the procession.
Much loved floats including the Princess Float, Rocket Ship, Henny Penny, Town Hall and Santa’s Helpers will return; and the Pageant will, as always, conclude with a visit from Father Christmas.
City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters Mayor Robert Bria said this year’s Pageant was expected to be the best yet.
“We have got a record number of community groups participating, and are hoping to also see a record number of spectators on the day,” Mayor Bria said.
“The Pageant has a well-deserved reputation as one of Adelaide’s most popular and authentic Christmas events, and is a great opportunity for families to celebrate the Christmas season in a vibrant, cosmopolitan environment.”
The Pageant will begin at Norwood Oval at 10am and travel east along The Parade to Queen Street.
