The Millersville Parade
Save the Date: October 14, 2023 @ 8:30 A.M. | Travel the World
The 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 have ranged from Shriners in "mini-cars" to Xtreme Pogo jumpers to handmade floats by area children's groups. The Parade Committee works hard to bring high quality bands to the parade each year from across Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. 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.
