11 October 2017

Float registrations for the 2017 Christmas Festival and Pageant are now open!

 

The Christmas Festival and Pageant is one of Albany’s favourite events and draws a crowd of thousands. The event is a great opportunity for community groups, businesses and residents to celebrate a fantastic year in Albany and demonstrate their community spirit. 

 

Last year’s pageant attracted over 30 floats and this year Mayor Dennis Wellington said he would love to see that number increase to 40.

 

This year’s pageant is ‘green’ themed with participants encouraged to incorporate sustainable or green themes into their floats.

 

“We love seeing the creativity and excitement that takes over our city when the pageant is approaching, having a theme to the pageant will help to drive the creativity as well as provide a focus for the event,” Mayor Wellington said.

 

“To see so many businesses and community groups come together to put on such an incredible display is outstanding, I’ve got my fingers crossed for sunny weather this year!”   

 

Registrations are open until November 6, 2017. Registration forms can be downloaded from the City of Albany website www.albany.wa.gov.au or by contacting the Events Team on 6820 3033 or events@albany.wa.gov.au.
