Many visitors to Holland are looking for signs of our Dutch heritage and find examples all throughout town. However, THE place to go to get a taste of our area's Dutch history and culture is Windmill Island Gardens!
Magic at the Mill returns to Windmill Island Gardens for the second year in a row this December! Join us for a magical holiday experience on Friday and Saturday nights December 1 – 16. This ticketed event will feature a 'tulip field' of 1,000 LED blossoms dancing to holiday music creating a dazzling light and music show! The windmill and park grounds will be lit up and attractions will be open such as the carousel for children, the street organ will play holiday tunes, and the gift shops will be open for last minute holiday shopping. There will also be an opportunity for children to greet Sinterklaas (the Dutch predecessor of Santa Claus) along with additional snacks and beverages available for purchase.
