Parade Participation

Thousands of spectators line the streets of downtown Holland to watch amazing floats, marching bands, Dutch Dancers, and numerous organizations present their finest in over two miles of pure celebration. Participation in the Tulip Time Festival parades is a great way for an organization, marching band, or company to "Join the Dance" in one of the nation's Top 100 festivals. The Festival parades are some of the largest and most spectacular events in Michigan.

Talented marching bands, entertaining specialty units, equestrian groups, floats, unique vehicles and pageant title holders are all welcome to bring a colorful presence to our exciting parades. What an unforgettable way to showcase your school or organization!
