ABOUT THIS TOOV

Dutch tradition.
The 30' april is 'Koninginnedag' - queensday in Holland. The (former) queen has her birthday and all citizens celebrate this happy moment. The whole country has the day of, dresses up in orange and goes out - to play folkgames, sell and buy their old housegear on a cloth on the street, have a drink and lot of fun.
In the big city it's big party. In Amsterdam it's great to party and eat and drink on the streets, watch all the boats in the canals and wander through the 'clothmarkets', musicbands and streetacts.
If you like the smaller scale and old folkore, go to the small villages where they play 'ringsteken', 'koekhappen', 'metdebrandweerspuitspuiten', 'luchtkussenspringen', 'bierdrinkenenmeidenversieren'.
In Groet - being already a beautifull village near sea - you can join the local people on the most picturesqe spot of the village for a breakfast. The local club puts long tables on the grass next to te small church 'Witte kerkje', the fanfare plays the anthem and other folksongs, children run around the church and up and down the dunes and soon the :Oranjebitter' joins in.
