Get Ready For This Year's Credit Union Christmas Pageant!

15 November 2017

We can’t contain our excitement anymore… There are only three sleeps until this year’s Credit Union Christmas Pageant hits the streets of Adelaide, bringing joy, happiness and a taste of the festive season! This amazing event will be celebrating 85 years this Saturday 18 November. Are you ready…?

It all kicks off from 9.30am with the traditional whistle blow, but you might want to get in earlier to snag a good spot… With more than 320,000 happy faces lining the 3.3km route, it really is a sight to see. You can find all of the route information here.

As the floats make their way through our beautiful city, that does mean that there will be some road closures on the day. For a full list of the road closures have a look here.

If you do attend the Credit Union Christmas Pageant, make sure you keep an eye our for those participating from Police Credit Union! You will find us on the Little Red Riding Hood, Fergus the North Pole Fire Engine and Christmas Jazz in the Park floats but you will also spot a few clowns and banner walkers as well! Give us a big wave from the sidelines – we are very friendly!

Speaking of floats, if you would like a full list of the floats that you can expect to see on the day, just head here.

We also have a handful of volunteers who will be handing out some very special packs with all of your Pageant needs including a program, postcards, sunscreen sachets and ‘if lost’ wristbands. Look out for the people in the blue #BetterCommunities t-shirts on the corner of King William Street and Hindley Street – you could even be lucky enough to get your hands on one of our much sought-after blue Santa hats or even one of our fidget spinners! Our very friendly mascot Poccu, will also be handing out lots of hugs!

You’re probably wondering how the day could get any better? Well, as a proud sponsor we wanted to try… Introducing the Police Credit Union EcoCaddys – you will see six of them cruising the streets of the city on Pageant day! You can catch a FREE ride between 9am and 1pm anywhere around the city! Enjoy!

Can’t make it? That’s okay because the special event will be broadcast live on Channel 9 from 10.30am and replayed the same day at 7.00pm. Plus you can stream it online at Check out more about the broadcast and its timings here.

We are very proud to be a sponsor of this magical event and we hope to see your smiling faces there! Bring it on!
