In great hills tradition, the Pageant was first formed in 1982 by a group of volunteers who work all year round to build, renovate and repair pageant floats. Since then around 18 floats have been constructed with each taking hundreds of hours to build. There are many wonderful floats for you to see and many of the local people and children also get involved by dressing up and accompanying Santa along the route.

Should catastrophic fire danger, excessive heat (40 deg C or higher) or extreme rain, thunder or lightning be declared for the Mt Lofty Ranges on the day, please check the website to ascertain if the Pageant will be continuing.
