For 53 years, Father Christmas has arrived in the Adelaide Hills at the Woodside Christmas Parade. This year, the fifty fourth parade will be held on Thursday December 22.

The parade, organised by the Woodside Commerce Association will feature a wide range of floats, from local community groups and organisation as well as float from local businesses, and of course, the arrival of Father Christmas
The Woodside Commerce Association is inviting all local businesses to be a part of this popular Christmas tradition.

Floats assemble at the oval, leaving at 7.00pm to travel along Onkaparinga Valley Road, to turn at Langbein Avenue and return to the oval by 8.00pm. Before the start of the parade, Father Christmas will visit all the floats to make sure that children on these floats have a chance to meet him. 

The Community family night will continue when the parade returns to the oval, where Father Christmas will have presents for all children under the age of 12.

Prizes are offered for the best Community Floats, and this year, the best Business Float will receive the HSBS Trophy, presented by the Hills Small Business Service, together with a voucher valued at $250 for advisory services and workshops to be used by the manager and staff of the winning business.

The official application form is available from Caltex Woodside, or it can be emailed on request. Application forms must be returned to the association by Friday 2nd December.

For further information, contact Jim Hennessy, the Parade Coordinator at Caltex Woodside, 8389 7268.

For local businesses, participation offers a wonderful opportunity to not only join with the local community, but also to be a part of this exciting and popular Christmas tradition.
