All the magic of the 2013 Credit Union Christmas Pageant can be found in a new DVD of this year’s event on sale today.

The DVD features the entire Channel 9 telecast of the Credit Union Christmas Pageant and celebrates its 2013 theme of Everybody’s Welcome. Relive all the Pageant magic including the three new floats that debuted this year: Little Red Riding Hood, Professor Fizz and her Kaotic Kontraptions and Rudolph’s Christmas Lolly Trolley.

Credit Union Christmas Pageant Event Manager Brian Gilbertson said the DVD captured the magic of the festive season and made a great gift for friends both in Australia and overseas.

“We were delighted to welcome more than 320,000 people to the streets of Adelaide for the 2013 Credit Union Christmas Pageant and it’s wonderful to be able to share the excitement with viewers at home,” Mr Gilbertson said.

“The DVD features a behind-the-scenes look at the Pageant’s home – Stardust Castle – plus footage from the Magic Cave at David Jones and a special interview with one of the 18 bands that helped create the fantastic Christmas mood this year.”

Credit Union Pageant Company Chair Peter Evers said he was pleased that DVD sales would once again support Channel 9 Telethon.

“The credit unions are proud to have been associated with this great event for 18 years,” Mr Evers said.

“The DVD and our partnership with Channel 9 Telethon is just another way we give back to the community all year round.”

The 2013 Credit Union Christmas Pageant DVD can be purchased from any People’s Choice Credit Union, Beyond Bank Australia, Credit Union SA or Police Credit Union branch (while stocks last). 

It can also be bought online at Telethon or by calling Channel 9 Telethon on 8267 0206.

The DVD costs $25 plus $5 for postage and handling. Proceeds from the sale of the DVDs will benefit Channel 9 Telethon and the Credit Union Christmas Pageant.
