The Credit Union Christmas Pageant starts at the corner of King William Street and South Terrace in Adelaide.
The Pageant meanders through the city from 9.30am, with Father Christmas arriving on North Terrace at about 11.30am.
The 2016 Credit Union Christmas Pageant Route will be the same as 2015. Locations for amenities and route crossing points may change for the 2016 event. The new route map will be available to view and download soon.
SA Water has a long history of supplying drinking water at the Credit Union Christmas Pageant to ensure a safe and enjoyable day for participants and spectators.
We are currently reviewing the supply of water for the 2016 Credit Union Christmas Pageant in conjunction with SA Water and will provide more information closer to the event.
In an effort to reduce plastic wastage and the need for bottled water SA Water produced 20,000 refillable drink bottles featuring their mascot and storybook character Captain Plop for the event in 2015. The bottles were given away for free and can be kept and enjoyed for many years to come by pageant spectators.
SA Water staff were on hand to fill the bottles with water from one of our Quench Benches or hydration stations at Wright Street, Victoria Square (southern end), Wakefield Street, Hindmarsh Square and North Terrace (near Kintore Ave).
SA Water launched their first Quench Bench in 2013, a specially-designed mobile trailer that can connect to a mains water supply and supply drinking water to people at large community events. Due to demand for the Quench Bench at community events there are now three in operation across the State.
