The Holland/Zeeland Community Labor Day Truck Parade will make its way through downtown Zeeland and Holland on September 7, 2015. The Labor Day Truck Parade began in 2006 and has evolved into a highly anticipated community event. This annual event was created to honor and celebrate the products and employees of the Holland and Zeeland area businesses. This year the parade is at capacity with 67 big rigs all representing local businesses! Click here to see a complete list of parade entries.

New route! The parade will begin as it normally would, in Zeeland on East Main Avenue (near No. Fairview Rd.), head through downtown Zeeland and proceed west via Chicago Drive, south on 112th Avenue and then west on Business 196/Chicago Drive to 8th Street. Once in downtown Holland, due to construction, the parade will move from 8th Street to 7th Street at Lincoln Avenue. The route will continue west down 7th Street to River Avenue then head south on River Avenue back to 8th Street, then west on 8th Street until the parade reaches the Holland Civic Center. The trucks will then park in the Holland Civic Center parking lot where free ice cream and an up close look at the trucks will be available. For a complete parade map, click here.

The Labor Day Bridge Walk at the City of Zeeland's Paw Paw Footbridge will start a few minutes after the conclusion of the truck parade (which begins @ 9:15 AM).
