Parading Bhutanese defied scorching morning heat of 35 degree centigrade with other more than 3000 participants and 2,24,000 spectators who had gathered to welcome Father Christmas.

“Many people were heard talking about Bhutan when the participants were marching in the pageant”, said Vikram Adhikari who coordinated the Bhutanese participants in the parade.

Every year, thousands of people line a 3.3 kilometre route in Adelaide’s city centre to welcome the colour and excitement of the Credit Union Christmas Pageant – the traditional herald to the festive season.
