So, not sure if anyone’s noticed, but it’s almost November. Can you believe it?! For many of us, November signifies a surge of motivation towards getting that summer body together, and the return of shorts and t-shirt weather. However undoubtedly, the most exciting event in the coming month’s calendar is the beloved Adelaide institution; the Credit Union Christmas Pageant.
Some of my fondest childhood memories involve the Credit Union Christmas Pageant; helping my mum make up the princesses with glitter and fairy dust, having my photo taken with the carnival dancers, and watching in awe as Father Christmas and his reindeer made their way along King William Street.
2015 marks 20 years of Pageant sponsorship for Credit Union SA and other local credit unions, and what a great journey it’s been. More than 70 of Credit Union SA’s employees, family and friends participate in the Pageant each year — there are even a few who can say they’ve been a part of the Pageant for every one of those 20 years!
On Saturday the 14th of November, join Credit Union SA in celebrating the magic of Christmas. Starting at 9:30am, all of your favourite floats including Winter Wonderland, Christmas Stocking, Nativity and Ye Old Pageant Tram will make their way from South Terrace, winding through the streets of Adelaide before stopping in front of David Jones where Father Christmas takes his seat in the Magic Cave.
An iconic and much loved event, the Christmas Pageant is an awesome day out for the entire family. Find your place and be sure to give your favourite floats, and of course Father Christmas a big wave as Credit Union SA play their part in bringing the fun and joy of Christmas to us for the 20th time!
