The Millersville Parade

October 22, 2022 @ 8:30 A.M. | Animal Kingdom

8442_ceged_1221_sa_2022parade_fullcolor_logo.pngThe Millersville Parade was started in 1997 by a group of volunteers dedicated to improving relationships between the Borough of Millersville, Millersville University, Manor Township and surrounding communities. Since then, the Millersville Parade has quickly evolved into one of Lancaster County's largest and most dynamic parades.

Parade entries range from Philadelphia Mummers in "full-plume" to handmade floats by area children's groups. The Parade Committee works hard to bring high quality bands to the parade each year from as far away as Baltimore and New York City. With antique cars, music, dancing, animals, floats and clowns, to name just a few of the many things entered each year, the Millersville Parade has something for every family to enjoy.
