Adelaide's much-loved Christmas pageant, which usually attracts a crowd of about 300,000, will go ahead this year despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Premier Steven Marshall says the event will be held on November 14, but instead of winding its way through the centre of the city, will be staged at Adelaide Oval.
It will be a twilight event before a live crowd, possibly as high as 25,000.
It will also be broadcast live and will also feature a range of other performances.
Tickets will be free but allocated through a ballot.
"It's going to be different from other years, but it is going to go ahead," Mr Marshall said on Friday.
"We couldn't be any happier."
The pageant has been staged in Adelaide for 88 years but was thought to be at risk of being cancelled this year because of the coronavirus.
It has traditionally been used to welcome Father Christmas to the city in the lead up to the festive season.
