You know the count down to Christmas is on when the pageant has its annual unveiling of new floats.
With only 31 days to go until the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant, three new floats were revealed at the 2019 Christmas Pageant Launch today, which was held at the famed Stardust Castle.
Making their debut was the Cinderella float, Mermaid float and the lead National Pharmacies float.
They’ll join the much-loved line up in this year’s Pageant, which is to be held on November 9th.
More than 320,000 people are expected to line the new 3.3km pageant route.
This year National Pharmacies joined the Christmas Pageant family as naming rights sponsor, and over 600 of their National Pharmacies staff and members will be taking part in the Pageant for the very first time.
Brian Gilbertson, Pageant Director, National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant said, “this year’s theme, A World Full of Wonder, is to inspire everyone to share the power of wonder – wonder how? wonder why? wonder what’s possible? We want to encourage children to wonder about the world, and adults to take a moment to reflect and remember what it’s like to dream.”
“The Pageant team is very proud to present our new floats, and I am sure they will be well received and loved by the thousands of Pageant fans. We really cannot wait to see all the excited children with their big smiles on the day,” said Brian Gilbertson.
The 2019 National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant will be held on Saturday 9 November, departing from South Terrace at 9.30 am once Sir Edward Hayward’s legendary gold whistle is blown.
