Santa Myer Christmas Parade
The wait is over for Santa and his Sleigh in the City


The costumes have been dug out, the choirs contacted and the giant blow ups dusted off. The Myer Christmas Parade is back for another year in Brisbane City. Many of the faces are the same, but let's face it, everyone loves a parade, who cares if it's mostly the same as it was last year!

The parade steps off to the beat of the Drum Camp's Drummers at 6:30pm. If you'd like a front row view then it's advisable to get there at 6:00 so that you get a great view. Either that or have dinner at one of the restaurants with veranda views and be entertained by the parade it winds its way up from the Edward Street end of the Mall then heads down towards King George Square while you done.

There are many entertainers to enjoy, from carolers to dancers from the Queensland Ballet, live camels, donkeys and reindeer, cute dancing snowflakes and amazing acrobats. The parade of course concludes with the arrival of everyone's favourite Christmas star, Santa in his Sleigh.

As the parade finishes in King George Square, the Christmas Pantomime begins, this year telling the story of Santa and his Christmas helpers rushing to save City Hall as it starts to freeze over. The lighting effects on City Hall are spectacular, as it sits there dripping with icicles. After Santa saves the day, the Light show on City Hall begins, with Clara on a quest to find the Magical Christmas Tree in order to break the evil Mouse Queen's curse.

Christmas in the city, beginning at 6:30pm is a colourful affair - definitely not to be missed this Christmas.
