Tour of the Royal Family

Each year the Royal Family visits a different city to enjoy entertainment. In 2015 the King visited the city Dordrecht. We do not know yet which city will visit op April 27, 2016. But we do know that the Amsterdam Cafe “De Blaffende Vis”(The Barking Fish) will surprise us with a display on the facade of their cafe in the quarter “Jordaan”.

The Royal Family arrived by boat  Dordrecht in 2015 and a grand parade started. After the parade the Royal Family went to the Cathedral were they watched a show of the Bach Choir. Later that day they met city residents; enjoyed local products and  artists showed their work.
