The Queens Day in the Netherlands

In Holland each year they have a day long party in the name of the Queen.

One must be suitable attired. Orange being the main colour.

Orange hair, orange shirt, orange paint on ones face.

Some paint their children orange.

Some paint their grandchildren orange.

Some even paint their bicycles orange.

There is a serious side to all this:

This is Gidean Horn who was given a medal by the Queen of the Netherlands for his youth work over many years

Some junior fire-fighters showing their skills.

Quite a crowd.

To watch a band.

My personal favourite is driving backwards on the dodgems at the fayre.

I really like driving backwards on the dodgems.
