Albany Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Pic­ture: Lau­rie Ben­son

Thou­sands of peo­ple will line York Street for the an­nual Christ­mas Fes­ti­val and Pageant this Sat­ur­day, in­clud­ing Great South­ern Gram­mar stu­dents Daisy Baker, Imo­gen Fethers and leap­ing Alec McDon­ald, all 12, and of course, Santa Claus.

Al­bany will have Christ­mas spirit this Sat­ur­day in 2018’s record-break­ing an­nual Christ­mas Fes­ti­val and Pageant.

The pa­rade will see 45 com­mu­nity groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions take over the city’s main streets, and Al­bany Se­nior High School stu­dents will close the evening with a con­cert.

Mayor Den­nis Welling­ton said he was ex­cited for his favourite event on the City’s cal­en­dar, with the largest ever num­ber of floats en­ter­ing.

“The Christ­mas Fes­ti­val and Pageant is a fan­tas­tic dis­play of com­mu­nity fes­tive spirit and it just keeps get­ting big­ger and bet­ter each year,” he said. There will be en­ter­tain­ment from 3pm, the floats will make their jour­ney at 6pm, and the con­cert will start at 7pm

A video about how you can ac­cess the pageant is avail­able on the City of Al­bany’s Face­book page and web­site.
