  Liberation Day in Roermond
by Imaniac

Every year on the 5th of May, the countries celebrates it's liberation from WWII. In every province and in Amsterdam there are big festivals. There you can see live music by great Dutch and foreign bands. But there's much more to do. It differs from city to city. Some have multi cultural markets, others have a veterans parade. Usually there is also a campaign from Amnesty fighting for freedom in other countries.
