New Floats – National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant 2021
The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant has unveiled two locally designed, full-scale floats for the 2021 festivities, Izzy the Dinosaur and Summer Holiday presented by JayCo Adelaide.
Dave Clarke, SALA Festival 2021 float design competition winner and creator of Izzy the Dinosaur, has worked with the likes of Damien Hirst and on blockbuster movie Mortal Kombat, said his float design is a nod to all things ‘the age of the dinosaurs.’
“The design has taken me more than 20 weeks to design, sculpt, build, mechanic and paint, with full production taking place at Stardust Castle with the help of the Pageant team. It’s a full-scale, jaw dropping float complete with baby T-Rexs and National Pharmacies community members dressed as cave men and women,” said Mr Clarke.
In addition to this, John Barone, who has been apart of the Christmas Pageant for 38 years, built a float reflecting Christmas time in South Australia – Summer Holiday by JayCo Adelaide. The design pays homage to what he believes is the essence of summer in South Australia.
“I wanted to build a float that reflects Christmas time in South Australia. In my opinion, Christmas caravanners are the essence of summer, and with more people holidaying in their home states this year it seemed fitting. Of course, we’ve added in a few more Christmas lights to make it even more spectacular,” Mr Barone said.
