Magical Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony

Zeeland's Magical Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony is CANCELLED.

Unfortunately, the forecast is calling for 100% chance of rain from 3pm until tomorrow night and it looks like heavy showers. We have decided to cancel the parade and do not plan on rescheduling. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and hope that everyone stays warm and dry!

Thank you to all of the event sponsors & volunteers for your support of this event. We hope for better weather next year! In the meantime, please join us for Feel the Zeel of Giving next week!

Zeeland's annual Christmas parade is a heartwarming, lighted parade, which is guaranteed to bring smiles to spectators of all ages! Among all the creative entries, walking groups & marching bands, the grand finale of the parade will be the entry that kids of all ages impatiently wait for…the appearance of Santa Claus himself as he rides through the parade up in the treetops!  

The parade beings at the corner of Main Avenue and Centennial Street.  The parade will then proceed west down Main Avenue to Elm Street.  It will then turn south on Elm Street to Central Avenue.  Turning left (East) onto Central, down to the parade finish at Central and Maple Streets.
