Our amazing team believes in giving back to our veterans for the sacrifices they have made and continue making, by providing them with a day of fishing on Lake Michigan, out of Holland. We have a fabulous boating community - here in Holland and surrounding areas - captains donate their vessel, equipment and crew; our sponsors who support our event; volunteers who give their time and our community that shows their support and appreciation at the parade. The parade follows the fishing, begins around 12:00pm, goes through the channel of Holland State Park that is spectacular to witness. Here is a link to view a portion of the 2018 parade https://youtu.be/J8p8MJro6pc

Our sponsors share the same passion for our veterans as we do and that helps us to continue improving and growing each year. All of our thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community.
