Glenelg Christmas Pageant | 26 Nov 2017


Go along and celebrate at the Glenelg Christmas Pageant on Sunday 26 November 2017!

The City of Holdfast Bay will be hosting the Glenelg Christmas Pageant along Jetty Road. Grab the kids and get a space early, and don’t miss out on the Buster Monster Truck! Plus loads of fun floats, dancers and of course Santa! There will be great pre-pageant entertainment including free giveaways for the kids. Afterwards, head to Moseley Square for terrific family-friendly activities including free face painting, balloon twisting, live music and entertainment.



There’s pre-pageant entertainment from 9.30am, then at 10.00am, snare your square behind the blue line to see a colourful parade of clowns, marching bands, dancers and festive local groups dancing, marching, walking, rolling, driving, skipping and somersaulting their way down Jetty Road to welcome Santa to the Bay at the Glenelg.


And don’t forget your camera because, after the pageant, Santa will be ho-ho-happy to have his photo taken with your children in Moseley Square, FREE! (no production-line professional photography fees!)


The parade

The anticipated 30,000-strong crowd will enjoy 70 floats, including 7 marching bands; 9 school and kindy floats; 12 dance, gymnastic and marching groups; tonnes of traders and community groups; plus a host of friendly, funny clowns and stilt-walkers. Three Nova 919 MCs will introduce the participants from key positions along the pageant route.

In Holdfast Bay tradition, the Mayor will make his way down Jetty Road in a horse-drawn carriage.

Stay a bit longer and have a play at the Glenelg Foreshore Playground too.

Road closures will be in place on Sunday 26 November 2017 between the hours of 6am and 2pm.
