The 30th of April is the day that the Dutch people celebrates the birthday of queen Beatrix. It is a day off for everybody, except for people who works in the hospitals, the police, the public trafic. In all towns in the Netherlands there are parties for kids and a lot of activities for everyone. Here in Amsterdam is a free-market in the inner town.
