Hey guys 'n girls,

Part of my trip, I've decided to stay in Amsterdam for the Pride parade 'cause it's one of the biggest events that'll be happening while I'm in Europe. Anyone ever been? I've never been to Amsterdam before and of course I pick probably one of the craziest weekends to go. hee hee. Wondering what people know 'bout it? I know it's happening around the week of August 6th, not sure too much of the details though.

Jenn

I've not actually seen one but my friends have...and they say it's a BLAST!

Definitely a great photo opportunity - but beware (if you're a puritan..hehe) they can get obnoxious - but all in a good spirited way!

As with most festivities in A'dam - parades often take place on the canals.

The canals are filled with boaters and the boats themselves are loaded with booze and partygoers...I think you'll have a great time!
