King’s day Amsterdam

King’s day is the official massive Dutch festival celebrating the monarch’s birthday. It was my second time at the festival. From Boat rides to truck parties, this is definitely the single largest party in the Netherlands. It is said that the liberal city of Amsterdam becomes more tolerant than ever during these 24 hours, barring police from interfering in the festivities. Here are few photos from the festival.
