The highlight of the Holland community's cultural calendar is the annual Tulip Time festival held in early May. Tracing its roots to 1927, the event has grown to include wooden-shoe clad "klompen" dancers, an authentic Dutch street scrubbing parade, parade of bands, children's costume parade and a variety of other entertainment. Today, Tulip Time spans seven days, attracting almost a million visitors.
