Pageant float

Christmas has come early at the City of Onkaparinga with the return of the pageant confirmed for the first time in three years! Mark it on your calendars as this is one event not to be missed! Beach Road, Christies Beach will once again play host to the pageant followed by Christmas in the Park in Rotary Park on the corner of the Esplanade and Beach Road.

The pageant will start on the corner of Hunt Crescent and Beach Road, Christies Beach. So set yourself up along Beach Road, before 10am to watch the procession of marching bands, dance groups, sporting clubs, community groups and businesses before Santa makes his appearance. Santa will be waving to the crowd as he travels towards Rotary Park where the excitement continues with Christmas in the Park.
