Here are some handy tips to ensure your visit to the Credit Union Christmas Pageant is a breeze!
Top Tips for Pageant Day:
Credit Union Cars are stationed along the route on Pageant Day - check the route map for locations
Visit the friendly volunteers from People's Choice Credit Union, Beyond Bank Australia, Credit Union SA and Police Credit Union for fun giveaways including the Pageant program, sunscreen, souvenirs and even chalk for those who've forgotten theirs!
And remember, to help keep your kids safe, write your mobile number on their wrist or collect a 'lost kids' wristband from the Credit Union Cars.
The Blue Honour Line
The Blue Honour Line is a Pageant tradition and the key to a successful and safe event.
By remaining behind the Blue Honour Line, you can ensure our performers have plenty of room to do what they do best.
Letting children sit at the front behind the Blue Honour Line should make for an incredible view of the Pageant and, of course, Father Christmas!
If you wish to sit while watching the Credit Union Christmas Pageant, we suggest you bring rugs, cushions or low folding chairs - some folding chairs can interfere with other people's view.
If you do set up a chair, make sure you leave enough room for children to sit in front of you - they don't take up much room but they're our biggest fans!
Cancer Council SA has five steps to protecting your skin when the UV level is 3 and above:
Slip on sun protective clothing
Slop on SPF 30+ broad spectrum sunscreen
Slap on a hat that protects your face, neck and ears
Seek shade - there are plenty of shady spots around the Pageant route
Slide on close fitting sunglasses
Don't forget to apply plenty of sunscreen before you go outside to allow it time to protect your skin and reapply throughout the day.
Remember - you can still get burnt even if it's cloudy and overcast!
Missing Persons and South Australia Police
There is a large police presence on Credit Union Christmas Pageant day. You can introduce your child to, or point out the nearest police officer so they know who to go to if they become lost.
The best way to ensure that no one goes missing on Pageant day is to plan a place to meet up afterwards.Arrange a pre-determined time and meeting place in case you and your group get separated. Make sure everyone in your group knows when and where to go. Write a parent/guardian/carer’s mobile phone number on your child's arm with a washable ink so police and emergency services can make contact and reunite you with your child. You can also visit a Credit Union Crew Car for a fun wristband - contact phone numbers can easily be written on the band.
A parent, guardian or carer should make sure they know what their child is wearing on Pageant Day so a detailed description can be given to police and emergency services if they become lost. Take a photo of your child on your phone or digital camera on the morning of the Pageant. This might be easier than trying to remember what they were wearing!
In the unfortunate event that you should lose someone and are not promptly reunited, please contact the nearest police officer or go to the police stations at either 26 Hindley Street, 60 Wakefield Street or 1 Angas Street to file a "missing person" report.
