Queen's Day in Amsterdam part 1

The 30th of April is Queen's day in the Netherlands. A national holiday with lots of street parties, drunk people and chaos. Queen's day celebrates the birthday of the mother of the current queen. And honors the royal family.
The best place to be is Amsterdam. Most people agree on that so the city is completely overcrowded but a lot of fun. 
Orange is the color that represents the royal family and has become the national color even though the colors of the flag are red-white-blue. So it is the color to wear on Queen's day.
Here are the first impressions of a great day.
