One last time: Celebrating Queen's Day 2013

This year, the biggest party in the Netherlands will get even bigger!

In January, Queen Beatrix announced her abdication along with upcoming plans that her oldest son Willem-Alexander’s inauguration will fall on April 30, 2013, the date of the last Queen's Day!

This means, the country’s wildest holiday coincides with the investiture of the first Dutch King in over a century! Now that's something to celebrate!
