The Winter Watch Parade is and annual event and is a vibrant and colourful parade through the streets of Chester, of skeletons, Christmas cooks, angels and devils. It celebrates the Winter solstice and dates from the 1400s. Local artists and community groups join together to celebrate the time when the city leaders would hand over the keys to the city watch.
