What is a Mini Float?

A mini float is a small mobile set that is light enough to be pushed or pulled along the Pageant route.

Congratulations to our 2017 Design a Mini Float Competition

Para Vista Primary School student, Sophia Ivanica, won the 2017 Credit Union Christmas Pageant Mini-Float Design Competition, beating more than 250 other designs from schools around South Australia. See her design here.

The Credit Union Christmas Pageant called upon creative students to enter a world of fun, fantasy and fairy tales, all with a Christmas theme.

South Australian school students aged 5-14 years old were invited to take part in the 2017 Credit Union Christmas Pageant Design a Mini Float Competition.

First introduced in 2007, the Design a Mini-Float Competition was open to individual students and class entries. In 2015, the competition attracted over 400 entries!
