If you’ve been following our weekend weather forecast, you’ll know that it’s going to be a dry one. So, what is there to do on this fine weekend? No worries, we have you covered! Here are 3 events that you can attend this week.
Spoiler: it involves pillows, bikes and tulips – what more could you want from a weekend in the Netherlands? 😉
1. PILLOW FIGHT!
There is a giant pillow fight happening in Rotterdam this Saturday. International Pillow Fight Day was last week, but it fell on the same date as the Rotterdam marathon. Of course, Rotterdamer’s didn’t want to miss out on all of the fun. So if you went to other pillow fights – well you can go to another. Bring your softest pillow, your strongest arm (but please don’t try to knock somebody out with it) and your bestest buddy. Go crazy – but not too crazy. See our article for info on this event!
2. Go and see the tulips!
Okay we’re mid way through April now, so the tulips are beginning to be in full swing. If you fancy splashing some cash (only some cash), then head to the Keukenhof to walk through the gardens. It’s literally so beautiful. If you want something a bit cheaper, catch a train, grab your bike or use your legs, and walk alongside the tulip fields in the same area. What a perfect weekend to do it too – the sun is shining!
3. Amstel Gold Race
This weekend is the Amstel Gold Race in Valkenburg. For the load of biking lovers out there, this is your perfect opportunity to see some cycling talent in the spring sunshine. Or to cheer someone on that you know is participating. It’s a proper Dutch event, and one not to be missed if you’re a cycling fan.
Have a great weekend guys (and don’t get battered too much in the pillow fight). 😉 And don’t forget to join our Facebook group for more. C’mon, ya know you wanna.
