Broken Hill Christmas Pageant

Christmas is in the air in Broken Hill.  It's just after midnight and earlier this evening was the annual Broken Hill Christmas Pageant.  I'm sure there will be some great photos in the "Barrier Daily Truth" newspaper on Monday, not to mention many uploads of photos to facebook pages all around town.  There were 41 floats, a market before and after the parade run by Middlemen and a Pageant Princess.  This year's Pageant Princess was 16 year old Hannah Pryor.  As well as travel on her special float, she was also there to help Santa give gifts to children in the rotunda at Broken Hill's Sturt Park at the end of the parade.  The event is run by Broken Hill City Council and South (Broken Hill) Rotary.

I must put this event in my diary for next year.  It is one of the many Broken Hill events that I still look forward to attending in the future.  It really sounded like it was going to be great fun.  I would love to hear feedback from anyone who went.  What was it like?  What was your favourite float?  You get the idea ... don't be shy.

Cheers, Jane D
