Feel the Zeel of giving Christmas Events

Where: Downtown Zeeland, Michigan

When: December 7-9 5:30 to 8 pm

Each year, the City of Zeeland selects a local non-profit organization to put on a series on Christmas events and activities downtown. This year’s organization is Shields of Hope. They are an organization built of local public servants who willingly give their time to spread love and hope to those in the community that are affected by cancer. They do this by fundraising and other supportive measures. Come downtown Zeeland for this three day series to celebrate the Holiday Season with activities such as a horse drawn trolley ride, sitting on Santa’s lap, and petting his live reindeer! A portion of the proceeds for this event will be donated to the Shields of Hope.


Visit Santa at Home & Company

Every child needs to have his or her turn to sit on Santa’s lap. Home & Company offers this Downtown Holland every year and you can even take your own pictures. Grab a bite to eat downtown, do some shopping, and end you night with Santa making precious memories for the kids!

Hopefully you’ve found something of interest in our suggestions and you and your family are able to create some wonderful memories this season!
