“Creative Memories have made Noah’s Ark and a giant xmas pudding which will certainly be one of the highlights and the big blow-up netballer will be on show with the Mannum Roos Netball Club members”.

Mayor Dave Burgess is extremely proud of the communities in the Mid Murray Council region and their contribution to events each year and said, “The Mannum Christmas Pageant and Street Party is a time when so many past residents come back to see their families and enjoy family fun and Christmas cheer”.

“We even have ‘Pondi’ the giant Murray Cod making an appearance after so many years in hiding who will be accompanied by the Ngarrindjeri People walking alongside”.

Lee Brocky and the Outback Overdrive are back to entertain us and Father Christmas will also make an appearance with Christmas gift bags for the children under 12
