HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - It has been a month since Tulip Time, but activity in and around Holland are showing no signs of abating. Sunny, warm conditions are expected to greet those headed to the Tulip City for a variety of planned activities today and tonight.
Holland’s sixth annual Multicultural Festival is this afternoon in Kollen Park. Organized by the Tulip City’s International Relations Commission, the five-hour festivities that kick off at 3 PM will feature on-stage entertainment, food booths, activities, more than 30 information booths staffed by local service agencies and faith communities, and artists from the Holland Area Arts Council displaying works inspired by various nations.
After last night’s Classic Car Cruise shut down 8th Street for about three hours, another downtown Holland street will be closed today. College Avenue between 8th and 9th streets is blocked off from 12 Noon to 1 AM to accommodate the annual Hatters Day Party, hosted by the New Holland Brewing Company restaurant. Around 200 vehicles participated in last night’s cruise to benefit the Vintage Car Club of Holland.
The Holland Department of Public Safety will be conducting fire training exercises in the area of 5th Street and Chicago Drive from 7 AM to 2 PM today. Crews from Holland, Holland Township, Park Township and Zeeland will be working to hone skills on buildings slated for demolition to clear out the site for the Holland BPW’s new natural gas-fueled power plant. The utility is helping to foot the cost of these exercises.
