King’s Day is almost here! For those who are not aware, April 27, every year is a national holiday in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The day is celebrated to mark the birth and crowing of King Willem-Alexander. The Dutch royal family bears the name — House of Orange — which literally means the color orange. As a result, it is Holland’s national color and everyone on Kingsday wear orange color clothes and accessories and party like it’s the last day on planet earth.
Everything is allowed during the celebration of King’s Day in the Netherlands! It’s a crazy celebration, especially in Amsterdam, when the whole city comes on the roads and the canals donned in orange. There will be fun parties, flea markets, live music festivals, boat parties and a lot more. The streets are packed with locals and tourists, mostly drunk and having a great time.
