Holland and Grand Rapids Santa parades

This weekend is what many think of as the true beginning of the holiday season as our local West Michigan towns host their own versions of Santa parades in both Holland and Grand Rapids.  Many of the local malls and stores also celebrate the arrival of Santa this weekend as well, kicking off the start of the holiday shopping season.  Several of our bed and breakfast couples for this weekend are planning on going to these communities and parades over the course of the next couple of days.
