A PAIR of Ocean Reef children were among the first to enter a competition to lead this year’s Christmas Pageant in Perth.

Luka (8) and Nikita (5) hope to be among the three WA children who will lead the annual parade on December 3.

The competition for children under 12 will close on Thursday, November 24 with entrants encouraged to submit hand-drawn masterpieces that show what Christmas means to them.

Each entry goes into the draw to be featured on the Synergy float during the parade and winners of each age category will join the utility in the event.

The categories are for six to seven-year-olds, eight to 10-year-olds and 11-12-year-olds, with the winners’ families also receiving $250 off their next electricity bill.

The December 3 pageant will start at 7.30pm on the corner of St Georges Terrace and William Street, with more than 20 floats featuring 2000 performers.
