2022 Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting

The Holiday Parade returns to Old Town in 2022! Hosted by Winchester Parks and Recreation, the parade begins at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 28. The parade typically features floats, bands, and vehicles representing local organizations. Santa himself will most certainly make an appearance, too! The annual tree lighting will take place immediately following the parade. Spirited and jolly community organizations are invited to participate in the parade by submitting an application, below. Applications are due by noon on Wednesday, November 9. The parade map will be made available to the public closer to the event so everyone can find a great spot to watch!
