2016 Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant
The 2016 Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant will be held on Saturday 19 November at 10.30 am to celebrate the beginning of the festive season in the City of Hobart. This year’s event will have 61 interesting and unique entries, with 1,640 people participating on the day. The Pageant route commences in Argyle Street outside the Royal Hobart Hospital and parades along Liverpool Street, up Harrington Street and returns down Collins Street.
One of our special guests this year will be Captain Hurricane, the heroic mascot from the Hobart Hurricanes Cricket team, who will assist in cutting the official start ribbon. We will also welcome the principal actors from the local production of the Broadway hit musical, Wicked. All our special guests will feature in the parade, and the Wicked cast will perform after the Pageant in Elizabeth Street Mall, along with a special Christmas Show brought to you from MakeBelieve Entertainment.
We would like to thank our naming sponsor Myer, as well as our media partners 7HOFM 101.7, The Mercury and Southern Cross Austereo for their continued support.
