West Chester Township will have its annual Christmas walk, holiday parade and tree lighting ceremony this Saturday.
The parade is held in conjunction with the Olde West Chester Christmas Walk, sponsored by the Merchants of Olde West Chester. The event features entertainment, crafts, activities and shopping for those looking to get their holiday shopping completed early. The Christmas walk begins at 1 p.m.
The parade will begin at Union Day School at 7 p.m. and will work its way down Cincinnati-Dayton Road toward the Township Administration building, where the community tree will be illuminated at 8 p.m.
As in years past, all interested participants are invited to join in the parade. The Grand Marshals of this year’s parade will come from each of these categories. A representative from each branch of the military will be honored, as well as community volunteer Ann Frazier.
