Queen’s Day!

I know, I know… it’s now King’s Day. No hard feelings King Willem, but my first visit to Nederland I was there on April 30, 2012 – Queen’s Day! It was a glorious spring day in Barneveld, after all a Queen wouldn’t dare let it rain on her parade! And there was a parade… games for the kids, a street market (you know the Dutch can’t have a party without including a street market!), drinks flowing, and I believe every Barnevelder outside that day. The village was a sea of orange (and it takes A LOT for me to say that – I’m from Denver Bronco country!)! Come to think of it, like our 4th of July celebrations… but with super tall people!

Queen's day!
