Everybody Loves a Parade!

Every year the city of Oak Harbor celebrates its Dutch Heritage during the Holland Happening Festival. Wooden clogs and windmills abound, and there's always a fun carnival that sets up for the weekend. There's a street fair, a fun run, entertainment, and lots of good food to eat too.

We here at the Oak Harbor library participate in the parade that is held on the Saturday morning of the festival. We gather up a big group of library staff and teens who love the library, and walk the parade route waving to friends, family, and everyone who's out for the fun.

If you'd like to join us this year, come to the Oak Harbor Library at 9:30 am on Saturday, April 30th. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather (looks like it's going to be cloudy this year). We'll have bubbles to blow, streamers to wave - and maybe even some donuts for everyone who comes out to help us promote the library!

See you there!

You can always be Dutch for the day - I don't think it's a requirement for taking part in the celebration.
