The Port Pirie regional community came out in droves on Saturday night to support their much loved Christmas Pageant and to catch the fun, Christmas shopping, food and festivities at Christmas in the Park regardless of the chilly, windy weather. Well done to all the participants of the floats – the businesses, organisations and private floats for all the preparation and making the event so wondrous and magical for the children and families, without you the pageant just wouldn’t happen.
There were many great creative and festive floats which didn’t make it easy for the judges Lynne Akker, Hon Geoff Brock MP and Mayor John Rohde to decide on who to award as best floats.
Best Business Float was awarded to the Federal Hotel and the Billygoat Hill Band in their old Bedford truck providing great music.
Best Organisation Float was awarded to Ballet Technique’s elegant Dance of the Maypole
Best Private Float was awarded to ‘Thai Siam Christmas Pageant’. The costumes were outstanding and actually sourced from Thailand.
Best Spirit of Christmas Float was awarded to the Port Pirie Regional Gymnastics Academy for their magical ‘Winter Wonderland’
Congratulations to these amazing winners and to all the people involved with all of the floats that were part of the Port Pirie Christmas Pageant.
We’re very excited to bring you the 57th Port Pirie Christmas Pageant 2017 Float Line-up! The children will absolutely love this year’s line-up with lots of great fun floats to mesmerise and bring the magic of Christmas to their vivid imaginations, creating lifelong memories.
The Port Pirie Christmas Pageant commences at 7pm (our second evening pageant) on Saturday December 2nd, 2017 with Christmas in the Park from 5.30pm-10pm.
Congratulations to all the businesses and organisations that participate and of course to the amazing Port Pirie Christmas Pageant Inc Committee and Sponsors – without all of these individuals there would be no pageant.
