The Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce QVC as its new title sponsor for this year’s West Chester Christmas Parade, which welcomed more than 40,000 people to the streets of Downtown West Chester in 2015. The QVC West Chester Christmas Parade is scheduled to take place on Friday, December 2, 2016, beginning at 7:15pm.
The community is encouraged to come downtown to join in on the festivities and watch as eighteen bands compete, along with five cold air balloons, several dance troupes, antique cars, and community floats and vehicles make their way through town—all festively decorated for the parade. A special appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Claus provides a highlight of the night for all in attendance as the West Chester Christmas Parade marks the beginning of the Christmas Season.
Mark Yoder, Chamber President, welcomes QVC as their new title sponsor by stating, “We are proud to have QVC become our title sponsor for this marquee event in West Chester. To have the global retailer and its employees support the West Chester Community in this way, exudes what it means for an organization to be part of the fabric of their community. This event is the shining star of West Chester and Chester County, and we are proud to be able to bring it to life with the support of our sponsors.”
“The West Chester Christmas Parade is a wonderful way to bring our local community together to connect in the spirit of the holidays,” said Colleen Rooney, VP of Global Communications at QVC. “As this year’s title sponsor, we’re especially excited to showcase the magic of this hometown tradition with our millions of viewers across the country as part of our live programming and through special programming to air on Christmas.”
Highlights of the parade will be broadcast during QVC’s holiday programming from December 24-26.
