  • Henderson Christmas Parade

    The Henderson Christmas Parade is held the first Thursday night of December at 7:00 pm. The parade features Santa Claus, bands, floats and performance groups. The parade route begins at the First Baptist Church and continues down Main Street to the four way stop at Church Street. For the best view and a chance to see all the performance entries find a spot on the Chester County Courthouse lawn and look for the “Henderson Carpet Red Carpet” performance area. The parade is produced by a volunteer committee made up of Chamber Board of Directors and is made possible by community sponsors. There is no entry fee for parade participants, but they must register in person at the Chamber of Commerce office at 587 East Main Street.
