It's a tradition that on Queen's Day people can sell on the streets what ever they want to sell. On this day in every city you'll see people selling everything from beer glasses to ski equipment. Personally I never bought anything on these markets but it is always fun to take a look. Especially it is very interesting to see kids playing musical instruments on the steets, for money. So many of them, on almost every corner, unfortunately only for one day. I've never seen kids performing on the streets of Holland before.
