Can you believe it? Just over 10 weeks until the streets of Perth burst into life as the Channel Seven and The West Australian Christmas Pageant takes to the streets for its 44th year.
Saturday 5th December 2015 – lock the date in your diary now!
Enjoy the fun and festivities as your favourite floats and characters, including clowns, dancers, TV personalities and many more join santa and his reindeer for this ultimate annual Christmas event.
The Northshore SES unit has been a proud supporter of the annual Pageant for many years, and we have committed to once again being a part of the 2015 event.
The 2015 parade will start at 7.30pm, and it will follow the same (longer) route as per last year, starting on St Georges Terrace (at William Street) heading East along the Terrace all the way to Plain Street, where it will turn right, head down Plain Street, finishing on Langley Park. Further details below:
- Parade will start on St Georges Terrace, at the cross of WILLIAM STREET.
- The parade will then head East down St Georges Terrace, on the southern side of the road, crossing Barrack, Pier, Irwin, Victoria, Hill & Bennett Streets.
- The parade will then turn right into PLAIN STREET, and will then head down PLAIN STREET ending at the cross of Terrace Road.
- Parade vehicles will then enter a secure area on the Eastern end of Langley Park.
Top Tips for 2015:
- No. 1 rule of the night – stay behind the blue honour line.
- Arrive early to get a good spot for your family, especially if you have little ones (at popular points on the route the crowd can get over 15 persons deep and viewing from the back is very difficult). Remember that over 300,000 people turned up to watch the 2014 event. If you turn up late you WILL NOT get a good spot.
- Take snacks and water with you. Once you have got your spot, you might not want to lose your space to get refreshments.
- If you’ve got little kids with you a well timed toilet break prior to the pageant start time will mean that you don’t miss out on the fun of the floats.
- A significant number of roads will be closed for the event and if you plan on driving into Perth, then do your research. Otherwise use public transport
