Come and celebrate our 40th Anniversary!!!

The 2017 Norwood Christmas Pageant is set to light up The Parade, Norwood on Saturday 25 November with colourful floats, music and entertainment including live bands, clowns, dancers, fairies and more!

Crowds are expected to line the streets from first thing in the morning and kids are encouraged to bring their chalk and decorate the street with Christmas drawings.


Pageant Route

The Pageant will start at Woods Street, Norwood and travel east along The Parade to Queen Street.

Please note, floats will be lining up on The Parade (between Fullarton Road and Woods Street) this year, instead of Sydenham Road.





Costume Hire - be part of the Pageant!

Each year the Council provides the public with the opportunity to borrow from our amazing selection of costumes, hand-crafted by a team of dedicated volunteers.

Please see below the dates you can choose a costume:

  • Saturday 18 November: 9am - 3pm

Following the event, you can return your costume on the below dates:

  • Saturday 25 November: 1pm - 3pm
  • Saturday 2 December: 9am - 12 noon

All costumes need to be collected and returned to the Norwood RSL Hall, 4 Woods Street, Norwood.


Temporary Road Closures

In order to facilitate this event, the following temporary road closures will be in place on the day from 7.30am until 12.30pm:

  • The Parade - Fullarton Road to Portrush Road
  • Beulah Road - Portrush Road to George Street
  • Queen Street - Magill Road to The Parade
  • George Street - Webbe Street to The Parade
  • Edward Street - Webbe Street to The Parade.

Please take note of  the restrictions which will be in place and make suitable arrangements. Click on the following "More Information" link to find out more.

Local businesses should also ensure that suppliers, clients and/or customers and employees are aware of the temporary road closures and make alternative arrangements.

It would also be appreciated if alternate arrangements are made in terms of parking on The Parade, Queen Street and Beulah Road, between 7.30am to 12.30pm on Saturday, 25 November 2017.

Please note, in previous years the line-up of floats has taken place on Sydenham Road. For the 2016 event, the floats will instead line-up on The Parade, between Fullarton Road and Woods Street. This will mean that the Council can reduce the number of road closures associated with the event which therefore will minimise the disruption to traffic on major roads and the surrounding side streets.

In respect to bus services and heavy vehicles during the temporary road closures, eastbound services and heavy vehicles will be diverted via Fullarton Road, Magill Road, Portrush Road and then onto The Parade as per normal. Westbound services will be diverted in the reversal of eastbound services.

Lost Children

Write your mobile number on your child’s wrist or arm in case they get lost and take a photo of them to remember what they were wearing, on the morning before you leave home.

Hats and Sunscreen

If the sun is out on the morning of the Pageant, don’t forget hats, suncreen and sunglasses for you and the kids!

Wet Weather

If it looks like there might be rain, bring your umbrellas and hooded jackets and possibly the kids gumboots for enjoying the puddles.

Stay for Lunch

There are many delicious eateries on The Parade for you to stay and enjoy after the Pageant finishes. Bookings might be they way to go if you are wanting a specific place.
