Winter in Holland

Visit Holland, Michigan in the Winter

When snowflakes being to swirl, we enjoy a lively new season of winter activities. Historic downtown Holland provides the perfect backdrop for this holiday festival, which kicks off with an open house complete with roving carolers and roasting chestnuts, and continues 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-air 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.
