Location: Parade Route — 8th between Columbia & Kollen Park

“Children’s Parade” Thursday, May 12, 2022    (Rain date Friday, May 13)

Dutch Dance Performance: 1:30pm

Parade: 2 – 3p

The Gentex Kinderparade (children’s parade) is a time-honored favorite. Elementary school children will line up with their teachers and school administrators in full costume and smiling faces as they march together through downtown Holland. Each school and grade will have their own theme that nods to the towns’ Dutch heritage, from Dutch agriculture to the Dutch Master’s painters.

In the event of rain, the parade will be postponed to Friday, May 13.
