GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Today thousands of kids and families joined Maranda for an afternoon of free fun at Kollen Park. It was a beautiful summer day in Holland to enjoy games, activities and free entertainment on the lakeshore.
"Over 5,900 kids and families joined us today for a beautiful day of free fun. Working with the City of Holland we were able to provide a great experience for thousands of kids. The smiles on kids' faces truly said it all," said Maranda. "This party has a great sense of community and it was a beautiful day to spend on the lake shore."
The Holland Park Party was packed, with families who came early to enjoy a free picnic style lunch in the park courtesy of the Michigan Department of Education and the area Public Schools. The stage rocked all afternoon with great entertainment including: Jump with Jill, Star 105.7 & George Moss. The Holland Park Party had tons of activities provided by local non-profit groups along with big attractions like the climbing wall, Country Fresh Bounce House and an inflatable obstacle course.
