Holland Fest modified amid pandemicAugust 13, 2020
By ALLEN LAMAN
HOLLAND — Like many summer festivals before it, the Holland Community Festival will look a little different in 2020.
“It is with heavy hearts that the Holland Fest Committee has elected to modify the festival to promote COVID-19 social distancing guidelines,” reads a press release. “In lieu of our typical festival events set to take place September 18th - 20th, there will be a Jeep Fun Run, a Saturday evening drive thru meal and Sunday afternoon drive thru meal.”
The Jeep Fun Run will be hosted by the Holland Fire Department from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19. All vehicles are welcome. Registration will take place at the Holland American Legion from 10 a.m. until noon, and the run will conclude at Holland Park.
Also on that Saturday, beginning at 5 p.m. at Holland Park’s Henke Stadium, a drive-thru dinner will be hosted. Menu items include $10 pork chops, $20 racks of ribs and $5 kids meals. Tickets for the Schwoeppe’s Catering meals can be purchased at the Holland branch of German American Bank, Bob’s Liquors in Holland, Family Roots Nursery or by contacting the events committee at email@example.com.
“There will be a limited supply of orders for pick-up during the event without prior ticket purchase,” the release reads. “We ask that all those picking up meals stay in their cars. All proceeds will benefit future festivals and local non-profits.”
On Sunday, Sept. 20, at 11 a.m., the Holland American Legion will host a drive-thru lunch at Henke Stadium — with the proceeds benefiting the Holland American Legion. Barbecue chicken dinners will be served $10 per ticket and can be purchased at Henke Stadium until they sell out. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Legion.
Updates and links to events can be found on the Holland Community Festival’s Facebook page.
