Hello and Happy Holidays!
As a member of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, we are proud to serve as volunteer parade producers for 12 years (2006 – 2017).
As we celebrate our 12th anniversary, we must look back at our original intent as to why we at Under The Sun Productions Inc. became involved as volunteer producers in 2006. That initial intent was to expose this great town to as many people as possible in the Nation and the region, so people would come to West Chester, not only during the holiday season, but all year long and to also have every business involved in the parade.
Since that time the parade has received great exposure, it has been named as one of the top 10 places to see the arrival of Santa by USA Today, the parade has received substantial recognition through radio and television, but the greatest expansion has been QVC taking this parade and sharing it with the entire Nation!
It is unbelievable to think that our parade is now viewed from coast to coast, and places our parade in living rooms of people who do not know where West Chester, Pennsylvania is located….BUT THEY DO NOW!
With that being said, we strongly encourage each and every business and corporation to get involved with the Greater West Chester Chamber Christmas Celebration, as it is all of our duties, during the holiday season, to bring smiles to young and old, and to fill the hearts of all with love and joy and a sparkle of light and what better way to do it than a free public event like the Christmas Parade!
Without support from businesses and corporations the holiday season in West Chester would be dark. Like our pal Santa Claus, plans for this year’s parade started before last year’s parade ended, and we’ve been working tirelessly all year to make this production our most exciting yet! Let us all march forward to the beat of a proud drum and realize the gift that we have in West Chester and the potential that exists for further inclusion of business and community support!
From our family to yours, we wish you a wonderful holiday season, and hope you enjoy the parade!
