GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) – The holidays are right around the corner, and nothing says so quite like the Art Van Santa Parade. Downtown Grand Rapids comes alive with winter fun and colorful characters. This year, the theme is ‘Christmas fun for everyone!’. It really is a fitting theme. Guests of the parade can expect singer Jacob Davis to belt out some holiday favorites, photos with Santa, and so much more. Plus, Mayor Rosalyn Bliss will be this year’s Grand Marshall.
If you love the Santa Parade, get involved! They are still looking for volunteers to help with staging, parade marshalls, banner carriers, clean-up, de-staging and more. Check out the video to see more about volunteering and check out the Santa Parade website. Don’t miss the parade this year on November 19th, starting at 9 a.m.
