The date for the return of Pageant of Lights has been set with the much-loved local tradition set to launch an exciting Christmas events program.
Market stalls, parade participants and roving entertainment will line Bourbong Street as the Bundaberg CBD hosts Pageant of Lights on November 30.
Bundaberg Regional Council Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said it would be the perfect way to launch this year’s festive season.
“The popular Pageant of Lights event will return to the CBD and I know plenty of families and parade participants will be very excited,” Cr Learmonth said.
“Pageant of Lights is a Bundaberg Region Christmas tradition and it’s wonderful to see it returning to our Christmas events program.
“This year’s events will also have some welcome additions in roving entertainers who will entertain crowds and join the parade.
“These entertainers were a popular part of the Merry and Bright events, which were held in place of Pageant following the outbreak of Covid, so it’s great to see the most loved aspects of these two events combining this year to ensure it’s the best Pageant yet.”
As part of the Christmas program Council will also deliver free Christmas movies throughout the region in addition to a brand-new event.
“I can’t reveal too much just yet but what I will say is that this event will provide fun for the whole family, get your toes tapping and see us partner with another very popular annual event.”
Local business and groups are encouraged to join the festive fun and register an expression of interest to host an event as part of the region’s official Christmas program.
Expressions of interest will also soon open for Pageant of Lights parade participants with an online form expected to be available from mid-August.
