'Vlaggetjesdag Scheveningen' has grown to be a nationally and internationally known event, where the Dutch New Herring plays a central part.
During Vlaggetjesdag Scheveningen, visitors are invited to watch spectacular demonstrations by rescue teams, participate in old Dutch children's games, admire famous artists and old fire engines, enjoy demonstrations of old crafts, watch famous chefs perform their magic, sing along with shanty choirs and enjoy the many colourful traditional costumes.
Music and more
Orchestras, bands, artists, artisans and old sailing luggers all contribute to the fun, which also includes miniature ships, sailing tours and sampling of all kinds of fish. And if visitors want a break from the action, they can always make a pit stop at one of the many sidewalk cafés or go exploring the historical Scheveningen village.
Vlaggetjesdag takes place at 11 June 2011, at the harbour of Scheveningen.
