The Crystal Brook Community Association is bringing the party to the Christmas Pageant this year with plenty of entertainment for the whole family.
Come and see a parade of floats decorated in a myriad of ways from Willy Wonka, Despicable Me and the Wiggles to a nativity scene and plenty of other wonderful Christmas themes.
Crystal Brook Community Association treasurer Linda Flitton believes there will be around 30 floats this year - more than the previous parade two years ago.
“The pageant brings everyone together, even if they aren't interested in Christmas,” she said.
“We usually get the whole town plus some extra attend, there are a lot of people involved.
“I'm hoping with good weather we will get the same turnout again this time.”
The pageant will start at 6.30pm on Friday, December 14 and will follow a different path this year.
It will start at the Adelaide Square playground instead of the oval and will meander down Bowman Street, which will be closed from 5pm for easier access.

Pageant night is a wonderful way to get everyone into the festive spirit and a good time for people to catch up with friends, neighbours and townsfolk.
This year’s entertainment will include face-painting, Christmas tree decorating (made possible by the Men’s Shed), chalk pavement art and live music from the Jukebox Boys. Plus Father Christmas will also be making an appearance.
After the pageant he will be set up in Damian and Ginger's, handing out lollies and taking requests from children, plus he will also be available for photos so be sure to bring your camera or charge your phone.
You can also buy some last minute Christmas gifts from one of the local market stalls and pick up some delicious doughnuts, Golden North Ice Cream or a barbecue dinner.
Council will also be there for a community consultation on what people can expect from the Bowman Street revitalisation and will also be opening the new library at 5pm.
Raffle tickets will also be on sale.
Adding to the festive feel, Christmas lights will be projected on some of the buildings so come and join the Crystal Brook community as they come together to celebrate Christmas at the pageant this Friday.
