Welcome to the annual Sinterklaas festivities in Hilversum. For many years we have been taking part of one of the most fun and enticing Sinterklaas Parades in the Netherlands.
Be prepared. If you have fursuitpaw-slippers, they are highly recommended.
During the parade we have access to a cabrio bus to rest.
Slight drizzle ahead..
Please be prepared! Bring a big umbrella (we have plenty of spotters to help you) and make sure your feetpaws are up to the task.
Update: 1,8mm rain expected, barely something, at 9:25am it is still dry.
We will gather in Grand Hotel Gooiland.
- Arrival by train: From Station Hilversum, it is a 9 minute walk. If you arrive before 11:00, I can pick you up by car.
- Parking: You can park at Garage Gooiland/Langestraat (daycard is 7,50. Available at the registration desk of the Hotel)
- Alternative parking: Click here for a map with the parking zones. The nearest street with free parking is approx 500m away. (Please double check! The moment you look away from your car on a paid parking spot, a meter maid will spawn right next to it)
