One of Adelaide’s most coveted Christmas traditions for over 60 years, has been to take the family for a drive through the Adelaide Hills to Lobethal for their always-amazing Lobethal Christmas Lights display.
The community comes together every year to put incredible Christmas light displays on their homes, creating magical avenues of delight, as families slowly weave their way through the small town, soaking in the Christmas spirit.
In addition to this wonderful Christmas tradition, is the Lobethal Christmas Pageant, which was due to be held on December 23rd last year. Unfortunately, due to the horrific bushfires which swept through the Adelaide Hills on December 20th and subsequent days, the Pageant was cancelled, along with the Christmas markets, and other festivities.
While the past weeks have been tough for hill’s communities hit by the fires, the Lobethal community is coming together once more. This time it’s to show their small town spirit, with a parade in honour of the CFS, police, ambulance, army, and all the volunteers who were involved in fighting the fires, and helping all those impacted.
The parade is due to be held on March 14th at 6pm, with a street party to follow. Everyone is encouraged to come along to this family-friendly event, to support those who are being honoured in the parade, and to be a part of the community event.
