325,000 welcome Father Christmas to Adelaide

325,000 people have welcomed Father Christmas to Adelaide following the 2019 National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant.

In a year of change to the traditional Pageant route, with more Blue Honour Line to squeeze excited children and families to the annual day of Christmas celebration, Father Christmas was welcomed to Adelaide Town Hall in scenes reminiscent of the city's grand receptions on the famed King William Street balcony. 

New floats such as 'Our Wonderful World', 'Mermaid', 'Cinderella' and the official 2019 procession-leading float welcoming National Pharmacies as the Pageant's new title sponsor wowed the crowd, with National Pharmacies' staff leading the way as performers on the route.

The 2019 National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant is available to stream retrospectively on Channel 9's streaming platform 9now.com.au, as well as on Christmas Day across Australia. 

The 2020 National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant will take place on Saturday 14 November 2020.
