Christmas cheer spread across the City as people lined Commercial Street on Saturday 19 November 2022 for the NF McDonnell and Sons Mount Gambier Christmas Parade.

The magical event came to life with the colourful and entertaining entries and floats created by our local community groups, schools and many volunteers.

A huge thank you to all involved in the return of the Mount Gambier Christmas Parade. It was incredible to see the smiling faces and excitement of the children, both lining the streets and taking part in the parade. City of Mount Gambier Community Events Team Leader Xarnia Keding
