One of the main events in Rotterdam during the summer is the festival of romantic music. We try to visit every year. The festival is held in one of the cities major parks. There are perfomances throughout the park all day. From popular romantic music to piano recitals and gypsy.
What I like most about the festival is the atmosphere, the way the people dress up for the event. Early in the morning the first festivalgoers arrive carrying chairs, tables, complete sofa's and even chandeliers. They all look for the perfect spot on the grass. It's all about 'to see and being seen', about looks and dress. Men wearing top hats, white tie and tails and women wearing the most beautiful dresses and extraordinary hats. Although I have never been to Ascot, I think our Rotterdam festival has an 'Ascot' feel to it, but without the horses :-)!
Let me show you some pictures of last years event.
What I would love to know is: what is your favourite event?
Wish you a happy Wednesday!
Lieve groet, Madelief
