Come along to the biggest Christmas pageant in the South West and join in the old-time Christmas spirit, on Saturday, 21 December 2019, from 2pm til late in Forrest St and Central Park, Collie.
Every year, Santa makes a special visit to the Christmas Pageant, ready to create some beautiful memories for you and your family.
Santa will pop out to his float to wave to the whole crowd during the ever-popular street parade at 6-7pm, then back into the grotto until 9pm. The parade starts at 6pm and does two laps of a circuit around Forrest St, Steere St, Medic St and Harvey St.
Individuals, school groups, community organisations and businesses of all descriptions love to get involved. Floats assemble in Medic Street at 5.30pm, opposite the Vintage Car Club, ready for the parade at 6pm. There’s no need to register, and there’s some great prizes on offer.
Ladybird Fairies, the Giant Bilby and Big Ted are coming for this year’s pageant, along with juggling duo Bizircus Stilt Walking Entertainers.
Kids can try out their skills on the Radrock Climbing Wall, Extreme Bungee Trampolines, High Rope Course or work their way through the side show and show rides operating right throughout the festival.
More for the kids! Top of the Stairs Puppetry and also Kite Kinetics during the afternoon and in the Street Parade. Plus, Face Painters for the littlies.
Hidden Talent will keep your ears entertained with amazing local performers throughout the afternoon. For the older crowd, but young at heart, the fantastic six-piece band The Good Things will perform in the Music Shell from 7.30pm to 10pm.
Browse to your heart’s content with a fabulous range of stalls in the Pageant’s annual Night Markets, open from 2pm-9pm. There’s everything from gourmet food and drink, knick-knacks, beauty products, artisan and unique products and services.
Food trucks will keep the hunger at bay, and when you’re finished browsing, settle back and enjoy the evening’s entertainment.
Bring the whole family down for this once-a-year street party. Don’t forget to bring a picnic blanket and chairs.
