Nelis' Dutch Village
Take a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago, on a day when a festival came to town. Demonstrations of old Dutch crafts, Dutch klompen dance performance and lessons, classic rides, petting farm and family fun all rolled into one. Tons of tasting experiences and one can even order a Dutch or local craft beer.

Evening Entertainment Concert
Concert Featuring Scotty McCreery

Close your eyes and get lost in Scotty McCreery's soulful voice as he blends contemporary and traditional country in this unforgettable live experience. McCreery takes guests through life's highs and lows through chart-topping hits "Five More Minutes," "Damn Strait," and "You Time," as well as current single "Cab in a Solo" and recent smash "It Matters to Her."

After winning season 10 of American Idol, McCreery launched his recording career by making history in 2011 as both the first country artist and the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Since then he's been producing award-winning albums and songs while touring and headlining all over the country.

Windmill Island Gardens
A beautiful oasis on the edge of downtown Holland, Windmill Island features a 248 year old working Dutch windmill "De Zwaan" (meaning graceful bird). The windmill, which reaches 125 feet from the ground to the top of the blades, towers over 36 acres of manicured gardens, dikes, canals and picnic areas.

Volksparade
For over 80 years, Holland residents have been keeping with the "Dutch Cleanliness" tradition starting with the white glove inspection. Later, watch hundreds of Dutch-costumed townspeople armed with brooms and pails scrub the parade route clean. Experience dozens of colorful bands, floats, and Dutch Dance groups as they "Klomp" along the route in their authentic costumes and real wooden shoes!

Holland Princess Dinner Cruise
