Caring People Pumpkinfest Parade

Zeeland, Michigan - Tuesday, October 2, 2012. The Caring People Pumpkinfest Parade, sponsored by Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital, is Saturday, October 6 beginning at 3pm in downtown Zeeland. This family fun event begins with pre-parade entertainment by local band Tarnished Brass. The parade will include marching bands, horses, tractors, kids of all ages and of course floats featuring the 2012 Pumpkinfest theme "Made in Zeeland."

This year's parade will be honoring former Mayor Les Hoogland as the Parade Grand Marshal. Prior to retiring in 2011, Les Hoogland had served as mayor of Zeeland since 1990 and served eight years as a councilman before that. After serving with the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict, Les worked for his father at the West End Garage and took over ownership in 1964. Les operated the business until 1986 at which time he worked in sales for the food brokerage firm of Bell and Schrotenboer in Grand Rapids. Les has served on a number of local boards throughout the years and continues to be involved in the local community.

Please note due to safety reason we ask that all children stay close to their parents on a curbside. Parent, grandparents, neighbors, guests and parade participants PLEASE help us to make this a safe and fun event for everyone by keeping children (adults and pets too) on the curbside.

If you're not able to make it to the parade be sure to listen to the live broadcast on WHTC 1450 AM.

After the parade be sure to visit the Rotary Chicken BBQ Dinner (2-6pm) and the Vitale's Entertainment Tent (8-11pm)!
