The man in the big red suit and his unmissable sleigh and reindeer will be hitting the town this Friday.

The annual Carter's Foodland Christmas Pageant will be lighting up the streets of Naracoorte with festive activities beginning at 5pm.

As children wait for Santa's arrival, they can get their face painted, bounce on the jumping castle, ride the Apex train, be wowed by a magician and stuff their faces with Christmas treats.

The parade will begin at 6pm and event organiser Angela Leech said there were a good number of floats entered.

With a forecast of 21 degrees for the day, the rain should hold off, but families are encouraged to bring an umbrella as a precaution.

There's no better way to get into the Christmas spirit, so come along and enjoy this magical night.
