Wouwse Plantage/Mastepinnelaand – Today it was time for the first carnival parade in the Netherlands. Like every year, this was held in Pindurp.

From the end of the morning you could see various cars and people coming towards the Wouwse plantation. Decked out in the coolest outfits and cheerful faces. Quickly assemble the cars and then set up from the gas station in the direction of the church. At 1.30 pm, Prince Stijn the first, Greatest Farmer Peer, Nar Tommeke and Sjampetter Joene, together with the court chapel W’ornouwus, left together with the 24 participating running groups and floats in the big parade.

A special moment for Prince Stijn: “For me this is the first time that I have been able to experience the parade as a prince. This also makes me the youngest prince ever in the parade and in Pindurp. Today the program is in full swing, so we can warm up for next week’s carnival. It is also a special moment to be on the wagon in this second-hand/new prince’s suit. We had to travel all the way to Deventer for this suit, because of course I’m not the smallest prince either. The motto “Cut from good wood”, coined by the previous Prince Erik, is therefore very applicable to me. After the parade we also have our ball and the awards ceremony, so we can celebrate until the early hours.”

From young to old, the running groups, floats and visitors, everyone enjoyed the beautiful parade again. The cars and running groups had once again made fantastic creations. The local groups focused their themes mainly on forest and cut wood, because after all we are also in the logging village. The groups from other villages and municipalities also had fantastic themes such as holidays, beach, professors and operations.
