Millersville Community Parade

Join us for the Annual Millersville Community Parade!

History of the Millersville Community Parade:
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.

The theme of this years’ event is Hometown Heroes. Please join us to pay tribute to the men and women who have made a difference in our local community, including those in the medical and health professions, police, fire, emergency responders, and educators.

Rain or shine! This parade begins at Penn Manor High School (off Cottage Ave.) as close as possible to 8:30 A.M. The parade usually reaches the Grandstand in front of the MU Student Memorial Center (S. George St.) at about 9:15 A.M. The end of the parade will be on James Street, as parade entries pass the reviewing stand and make a left onto James Street (adjacent to Charles Gordinier Hall on the MU campus). From the time the first parade entry passes your viewing location, you should anticipate about 2 hours until the final entry arrives.
