Sinterklaas Parade

A Sinterklaas parade is part of Dutch Winterfest in Holland, Michigan. The parade used to come to the Kerstmarkt at Centennial Park, but now continues on down to the Kerstmarkt's new location in a pedestrian market area by the Civic Center. Sinterklaas still rides his white horse, accompanied by Piets tossing candy, and greets the children. He arrives a week later than Santa Claus, who also has a parade.
