Christmas is approaching and that means the Christmas Parade and Pageant is on it's way (Friday December 17), and we need your help!

This is a call out for floats.

We are asking you to be in it, join in, have some fun and spread some joy.

Individuals, social groups, family groups, sporting clubs, businesses, please join in, you will not regret it.

It can be as elaborate or as simple as you like, a purpose-built float, some mates on the back of a tinselled-up truck or ute, or a walking group in fancy dress.

Let your imagination run riot, you will be appreciated by the crowd.

Of course, there is a bonus for participation, prizes!

Categories include - Best Float, Best Float by a Club or Association, Best Dressed Boy, Best Dressed Girl, Most Unique Entry, Best Scooter or Skateboard, Best Dressed Male, Best Dressed Female, Best Mobility Scooter Clown or Group, Most Popular Float/Individual, Best Decorated Ute, Tractor or Truck.

Due to COVID we will be retaining last year's route which was the Esplanade to Wheelton then on to Giles then turning on to Todd and proceeding to the oval where a lap of the oval will be made.

Further information will be issued as we proceed with the organisation of the event.
