If there’s only one thing you make it to in York County this year, let it be a Christmas Parade in one of our downtowns! Our towns and cities do a great job of putting on fantastic light and float displays for you to celebrate the Holiday Season.

We put together this full list of every parade, so you’re sure not to miss it!
