You don't have to venture into Philadelphia to experience an over-the-top holiday parade. West Chester will host its very own parade not far from Audubon Manor on Friday, December 1st at 7:15 p.m. The annual QVC West Chester Christmas Parade is always a blowout, and this year will be no different.

Miss America 2018 Cara Mund is slated to serve as the grand marshal at this year's parade, but she's not the only star of the show. Local celebrity Adam Joseph of 6ABC News and QVC hosts Carolyn Gracie and Dan Hughes will provide the commentary for the evening. Come a little early to enjoy holiday open houses at local businesses, complete with refreshments and festive music, and to snag a good spot along the parade route. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of your face when QVC airs pieces of the parade on Christmas Day.
