Community Holiday Parade














Fire Engines, Marching Bands, Choirs, Antique Cars, Horses, Local Schools, Santa Claus… and did we mention the Phillie Phanatic?



The CHCA brings Santa to the neighborhood every year in this long-standing Chestnut Hill tradition. Families line Germantown Avenue to wave to the marchers in our Annual Chestnut Hill Community Holiday Parade. We welcome teams, scouts, and musical groups to help us celebrate! Organize your block and join the parade!

How do I volunteer?
Volunteering is a Chestnut Hill tradition. The CHCA has many committees comprised of volunteers planning for our events and addressing a variety of community issues. We always welcome new volunteers! Another way to get involved is to run for a seat on the Board of Directors. Board members serve for 3-year terms and meet on the fourth Thursday of every month except December. You don’t need to be a member to join most of our committees. To volunteer, call 215-248-8810 or email info@chestnuthill.org.

How can I sponsor an event?
The CHCA holds many events throughout the year, including the Pastorius Park Summer Concert Series, Movies Under the Stars, the Black & White Gala, the Chestnut Hill Holiday House Tour, the Chestnut Hill Holiday Parade, Circle of Trees, and the Hoops Madness Basketball Tournament. We invite businesses and individuals to sponsor any or all of them. It’s a great way to increase your exposure with those who live and work in Chestnut Hill.
