Memories of my first time in the Credit Union Christmas Pageant

Mel Fairy NimbleI still remember the first and only time I was in the Christmas Pageant when I was 5 years old. I was a fairy on the Nimble Float.

To this day I recall the excitement that I was in the parade that Father Christmas was in, I remember getting my beautiful dress and make up done and being proud to be a part of it.

The Pageant has always been a big part of my life and I have been to nearly every Pageant over the last 32 years. I love lining the streets with my nieces and nephew and watching their faces as the floats go by. The energy and fun at Pageant time brings out the big kid in all and Adelaide feels alive with the Christmas spirit.

I have always dreamed of being in the Pageant again and finally on Saturday I will dance my way through the street on the Bandicoot Bore float. I can’t wait to see all the happy families anticipating Santa’s arrival.

Working for an organisation that supports such a large community event makes me feel very proud and I am counting down the sleeps until show time. Hope to see you there on Saturday!
