While last year’s event was marred by bad weather, this year everything’s on track for the Carters Foodland Christmas Pageant, to be held this Friday, December 7.
From the late afternoon onwards there will be plenty of entertainment in the town squares. Make sure not to miss fantastic performer George the Farmer, singing and dancing on stage!
And of course it wouldn’t be pageant day without the service clubs rolling up their sleeves and making sure that everyone has some fantastic food to eat.
Feel like something sugary? Why not see the Soroptimist ladies and get a donut, or get some delicious home grown berries from Frances Strawberries? For something a bit more filling, the Scouts will have sausages, and Make-A-Wish will have some steak sandwiches.
The gymnastics club will also have roast gravy rolls – yum!
As for refreshments, the Girl Guides will have cold drinks on hand, with temperatures forecast to reach the high twenties.
(But for parents who need a bit of perking up after looking after their families, don’t worry, there will also be Pitt Stop Coffee!).
As for the main parade, it looks like there will as always be plenty of floats going down the streets at 6pm.
There’s also been a change of plan this year for Santa. Santa traditionally comes down the parade on the last float, and this year a major sponsor has put up their hand to provide Jolly Old Saint Nick with his sleigh.
Naracoorte Lucindale Council has everything ready to make sure that the roads are closed off and the centre of town is transformed into a Christmas wonderland.
Naracoorte Lucindale Business and Tourism Association and other helpers have also been working tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that everything goes smoothly.
And in a new development, the festive cheer in town won’t end just with the pageant this month.
On December 21, all of the shops on Ormerod St and Smith St will be offering late night shopping from 5pm to 9pm to help everyone out with those last minute gifts.
