New look for this year's Myer Christmas Parade

Twelve Drummers Drumming


The Myer Christmas Parade has had a makeover for 2015. After a couple of years of watching The Nutcracker characters make their way up the mall, this year the parade has a new lease on life with The 12 Days of Christmas winding its way through the mall. With all new music, costumes and Inflatable figurines, the parade winds its way from the bottom end of Queen Street Mall where it meets Edward Street, making its way up and turning to head towards King George Square, where the Pantomime will take place on the stage. This year's pantomime is a delightful Christmas spectacle, as two villains battle to stop Christmas by slipping Santa a sleeping potion into his dinner.

Following on from the parade and pantomime is the Gold Lotto City Hall Light Spectacular which is a magical story projected onto the walls of Brisbane's iconic City Hall. This year, the all new and more spectacular show presents the last act of The Nutcracker, with the heroine Clara getting lost in the land of sweets. The light show starts at 7:30pm and runs every 15 minutes following until midnight. The light show runs until Christmas Eve.

Nine Ladies Dancing


It is advisable to arrive early to get a good view, with crowds lining the way being four or five deep. If you intend to also see the pantomime, get to the stage early and secure a seat. The parade steps off to the beat of the drums at 6:30pm every evening from 11 December until 20 December. Be entertained by dancers, choirs and drummers, as well as seeing camels and reindeer in the parade, and of course, Santa will make an appearance.
