2020 Mini Float Competition!

The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant are proud to announce the 2020 Mini Float competition to find the creative genius of all children in South Australia, and to encourage everyone to get creative and draw, make, craft, and design a mini float!

We are calling on all children aged 5 - 16 in South Australia to get creative and add to the World of Pageant Wonder by taking part and designing a mini float. The winning float will be built and showcased in the 2020 Pageant parade.

The Mini Float Competition is open to both individuals, class groups, arts students or children that just love to draw and be creative. You can present a drawing, painting or model.

This is a wonderful opportunity to put pen to paper, colour pencils and whatever other tools young creative minds can conjure up to imagine, craft and create a Pageant mini float.

Australia's Home of Christmas

Since 1933, the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant has grown to become one of Australia's most cherished events, celebrated every November with the support of National Pharmacies and the South Australian Tourism Commission's events arm, Events South Australia.

As the Southern Hemisphere's largest public parade, it marks the official welcoming of Father Christmas to Australia, with the man in red greeted by well over 325,000 excited parade-goers in 2019 waving their favorite floats by from behind the 'Blue Honour Line'.

National Pharmacies is the title sponsor of the Christmas Pageant, and a proud South Australian organisation. Since opening its first dispensary in Adelaide in 1911, National Pharmacies has expanded to 51 pharmacies across South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, and 20 Optical Stores in South Australia and is proud to partner with the event to continue captivating generations of Australian children.
