I don't think they are ohmy.gif  I can't find a thing on their websites and I rang both stores. Myer phone op told me no!!!!!!  This can't be right, they've been doing them for years. I love them both and always bring the kids to them, we make a whole day of it the city.

I have never know Myer to have any sort of parade. Neither has David Jones in any city I have lived in.  Adelaide does have the Christmas Pageant which finishes at David Jones, but it is put on by the Credit unions and the State Government, not either department store. The Christmas Pageant in Adelaide was last weekend.

I don't remember one from my time living in Melbourne - Myer has the windows though.

Well looks like they're not. No word from DJs yet.

They had something on last Friday when they enveiled the windows.

Isn't the parade the same day as Santa arrives in store and the windows are revealed?  If it is then it was last week I think

Sorry, was last week!! Myer had theirs on the Friday when the windows were unveiled and Santaland opened, and DJs had theirs on the Saturday with a kids concert in the Bourke St Mall and Santa arriving (via Ben 10s help laughing2.gif)
Our local centre is having Santa arrive this weekend with a little parade and a kids show original.gif Maybe google your local shopping centre original.gif

Myer's concert was big last year and televised via one of the morning TV shows but it was rained on and there was no parade. I was there and it was kindof fun but kindof miserable and wet so the kids were a bit flat. The tree in DJs was good though. Wonder if they have that again this year.

Also they might have some kind of celebration when the main tree goes up in the city. No sign of that yet.
