Winter in Holland

Winter Holland Michigan beach

When snowflakes being to swirl, we enjoy a livey new season of winter activites. Historic downtown Holland provides the perfect backderop for this holiday festival, which kicks off with an open house complete with roving carolers and roasting chestnuts, and conitnues with events for the entire family. Enjoy the creatively lighted floats in the Parade of Lights.  Visit with Sinterklaas, the Dutch St. Nicholas and his mischievous Zwarte Piet helpers, and stroll through the "Kerstmarkt," a European open-airt Christmas market. There are holiday theatre and musical performances, a green sale, home tour, Victorian Christmas teas, special exhibits and, of course, Santa himself.  Holland's warmed cobblestone sidewalks, unique shops and galleries, specialty import shops and open-air market provide one -of-a-kind holiday shopping throughout the festival.
