The Hague Centrum Fair for Koninginnedag Fun Until a Week Later

After doing the villagers' Flea Market in the morning of the Queen's Day or the Koninginnedag in the Netherlands, we went back home to have our traditional lunch. At 15:00 or at 3 o'clock, we were ready to have fun in the Hague city center for the fair where games and rides were available. With less than Eur 30 (approx  spending, we had so much fun from games and little prices (no rides for us). There were a lot of games, but basically almost the same games years ago as we were there too in 2009, both for kids and adults. Older than adults can also enjoy the plant markets nearby with blooming spering flowery pots and/or fruity pots (I was not able to take photos of a lemon with lots of fruits in a pot and there was also the mandarins beaming with fruits). I also learned that the fair is still available for a few more days after the 30th of April. If this weekend it is still there, I might go back and play again.

Below are some of the phots I took. The image up are some of the little winnings we got... Hearties and a bunny! That is our remembrance for the Dutch Queen's Day 2011 together with some very affordable purchases here from the flea market.



I like thisphoto... and you?
The exciting ride that makes the riders scream their throats out for fun/fear...


The swan (or is that a duck?) does not mind at all...
I like that duck in blue sweater...
There was a thriller/scary house too!
Entrance to the scary place...
I had only 25% success rate here... hit one of the 4 objects... and won the brown hearts up.
For plant lovers' area... this was nearby as well...
