  Queen's day dress-code.
by Pavlik_NL

Activities around our national holiday: Queens day at the 30st of April put Arnhem up-side-down. Livemusic on many locations and everything goes into a partymood. On the marketsquare is a huge freemarket for people who want to find that one item that they never saw in a shop.
Dress in orange (colour of the Dutch royal house) and you will be one of us. At night fireworks over the river Rhine are an official end to the festivities, though many party on until the next morning.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
