Sinterklaas Eve Dutch Holiday Celebration in Holland, Michigan

The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with arts & crafts, lantern making, refreshments and story time downtown.

Everyone is then invited to bring their lanterns out and join the procession at 7:15 as Sinterklaas arrives on his white horse surrounded by his Zwarte Piet helpers as he travels through downtown Holland.

The procession will proceed four blocks along 8th Street through the historic downtown shopping area, arriving at the Kerstmarkt (the open-air European Christmas Market) where Sinterklaas will be officially welcomed by the Mayor.  He will then speak to the crowd, meet with everyone and take pictures with the families.

The evening will also include carolers, Sinterklaas themed activities and great opportunities for holiday shopping!
