Saturday, November 23, 2019 - 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The West Michigan holiday season will officially kick-off with the Art Van Santa Parade, presented by the Grand Rapids Junior Chamber. Downtown Grand Rapids will be filled the sweet sounds of local marching bands, carolers, and local performers. Entrants for the 2019 event will create unique entries around the theme, 100 Years of Memories, including costumes, music and floats based on popular & classic holiday songs. 

Meet Saint Nick directly after the parade and take your photo with him! This free event (sponsored by ITC) will be held in the lobby of the building at 250 Monroe. “We’re moving Santa indoors for a more pleasant experience for all,” says Sarah Fales, a parade organizer.
