Registrations are now open for the 2018 Murray Bridge Christmas pageant.

Registration forms can be downloaded from the website of the Murray Bridge Business Alliance, which has taken on the task of organising the parade and the riverfront festival and fireworks spectacular which traditionally follow it.

Anyone may enter a float free of charge, so long as it maintains a Christmas theme.

The best float in each of four categories – local business, sporting club, community group and school, early education centre or child care provider – will win a $500 prize.

This year's pageant will begin at 5.30pm on Saturday, November 17.

The riverfront festival will start at 6pm and the fireworks show will be at nine.

Information about the line-up of floats and parade route will be released closer to the date, though it is already clear that they will begin on West Terrace and North Terrace, near Murray Bridge North School, instead of on Verdun Road.

Registrations are due by October 31.
