The West Michigan holiday season will officially kick-off with the Art Van Santa Parade, presented by the Grand Rapids Jaycees.
Downtown Grand Rapids will be filled the sweet sounds of local marching bands, carolers, and local performers. Entrants for the 2021 event will create unique entries around the theme, including costumes, music and floats based on popular & classic holiday songs.
Thousands of parade-goers will be watching as the Parade makes its way down the streets of Grand Rapids. The parade will be broadcast LIVE on WoodTV8 starting at 9am on Saturday, November 21, 2021.
