Koninginnedag Dag (Queens Day) at Alpine Village

Photographing the still life.

On Sunday, April 29, The Dutch Chocolate Shop hosted a booth  to meet and greet Dutch aficionados at the first annual Queens Day celebration at Alpine Village. Each year in the Netherlands, April 30 marks the celebration of the birthday of  Queen Beatrix.  It’s a huge party and street festival, punctuated by what is called a “Vrijmarkt” –  a kind of nationwide flea market where people sell anything and everything.  While Queens Day in Alpine Village was a bit more tame than what you would find in Amsterdam, it was animated nevertheless!

Guests at the Queen’s Day Celebration at Alpine village artfully posed their Dutch goods–Heineken beer, Holland new Herring, and our special edition postcard!
