IWC joins the Pageant of Lights

IWC is bringing its own bit of sparkle to the Pageant of Lights this year!

The 2018 Pageant of Lights is set to bring some sparkle to the CBD this December, and IWC is embracing the Christmas spirit.

IWC is one of many organisations bringing their cheer to the free festivities, which are set to be huge this year, with dozens of floats and hundreds of spectators expected.

The Pageant of the Lights is a celebration - marked by Christmas lights, market stalls, food and live entertainment - centred around the main parade on Bourbong St.

There is a vast array of floats representing various service providers, community groups and organisations; they all feed into the Christmas theme in their own creative way.

IWC will be opting for a 'bush Christmas theme', complete with authentic indigenous music, butterflies, and a bush Christmas tree.

Taribelang man and Traditional Owner, Byron Broome, will use his didgeridoo to set the scene as the next generation trails behind, making glowing butterflies dance around the bush Christmas tree.

"The year we were inspired to share a bush Christmas with the people of Bundaberg. By having the children of our supporters and staff on the  float, raising the IWC's iconic orange butterflies high, we're inviting the next generation to share their pride with the community," IWC spokesman Alasdair Young said.

The Pageant of Lights will be held in the Bundaberg CBD from 5pm to 9pm, December 6.​

Anybody interested in marching with the float can apply by filling in a registration form, available at the IWC front counter at 184 Barolin St.

It’s good to know I can get what I need, not being told when my therapies are, or where I’m going. In the past, that’s how it’s been. As I see it, the NDIS is the only way to go.
