The Town of Purcellville is gearing up for the holiday season, inviting residents, business owners, and artisans to participate in the parade, the holiday market, and in the holiday lights tour. Applications and registrations for the parade, the market, and the lights tour are due Nov. 30.

The parade will be held Saturday, Dec.11 starting at noon with the theme “Holidays on Screen.” There is no cost to be in the parade, but registration is required.

Area artisans are invited to be part of the Holiday Market at Town Hall after the parade, from 1 to 8 p.m.  The cost is $25 per indoor space and $10 per outdoor space. 

For those who go all out with their decorations, the town wants to put them on the Holiday Lights Tour map. This program encourages residents and visitors to drive around Purcellville to see the best displays around town. Members of the Purcellville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will view the decorations the week after Thanksgiving to determine the route.
