Sinterklaas Parade

Sinterklaas Parade

Arrival of Sinterklaas. He might look similar to Father Christmas or Santa Claus, but 'Sinterklaas' (Saint Nicholas) is a very Dutch character loved by children and adults alike. His arrival in Amsterdam in mid November each year traditionally marks the official start of the city's festive season.
