Sinterklaas Visit


Lynden celebrates its Dutch heritage with Sinterklaas arrival in early December. He comes on a white horse, accompanied by three Piets who give bags of treats to the children. The children join in the parade, following the saint to the community center for traditional Dutch Sinterklaas songs, dances, stories, and toys. The day ends with the Lighted Christmas Parade.
