Ticket Price: 

A special type of holiday cheer returns to Winchester on Monday, November 28, 2022 when the annual Holiday Parade returns to Old Town. Hosted by Winchester Parks and Recreation (WPRD), the parade begins at 7 pm and 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 on the Loudoun Street Mall (1840 Courthouse).
