Kralendijk- The childeren’s parade which passed through the streets of Kralendijk this year was relatively small with only 4 troupes, but all troupes were nice, colorful and lively. In spite of the relatively small size, it took quite some time for the parade to reach to the streets of Kralendijk.
As is the case nearly every year, some discussion can be heard about the foundation organizing Carnival since last year. According to yet unconfirmed rumors, the carnival foundation would be planning to resign ‘en mass’ because of disconent about the way things surrounding carnival are handled these last few years. One big complaint is that subsidies received by the foundation are considered ABB taxable income for the foundation.
