Middletown Township will host its first parade in 25 years on Saturday, May 7 to kick off its annual Community Day festival.

The parade will celebrate the Township’s 325th anniversary. This special occasion is set to begin at 10 a.m. at the Granite Run Mall, then travel south on Route 1, turn right onto 452/Pennell Road and left at 352 to end at the Penn State Brandywine campus, where the 17th Annual Community Day festival will commence. Leading the parade will be the Penncrest High School Band.

Middletown Township, along with the help of the Middletown Historical Society and Middletown Free Library, have planned this parade for area residents. Middletown welcomes residents with significance to the Township’s history, such as previous council, board and committee members to participate. Please register by April 14 by visiting www.middletownfreelibrary.org online.

All residents and businesses are invited to come out and enjoy the festivities of the parade and Community Day. The day will be full of entertainment for people of all ages. Events will include musical acts, many food selections, a car show, and face painting, pony rides and inflatable play areas for the kids. Each year, this free event attracts more than 1,500 area residents.
