Museum of Markelo traditional costume
This museum is dedicated to Markelo traditional costume. Two ladies tell you a story about how it's been made, how it is preserved and how it's been given from generation to generation.
This windmill is somewhat a symbol of Markelo. It was used for milling wheat, corn and other grains, but nowadays serves as a museum, though it is still functional.
Bill's bar: Something for everyone
This "bar" is actually a huge building with several theme rooms with music from 80's, 90's, then there are rooms with modern music, disco dance floors, a big restaurant, and a part for the club music.
Something for everyone.
Markelo Local Customs
Folklore festival Cadans
Cadans is an international folklore festival held in Markelo. We were invited in 2009, and other groups were from Holland, Scotland, India, Spain, Paraguay and Italy.
Markelo Sports & Outdoors
A bit different golf
People call this "Farmer's golf". The golf club is actually a wooden stick on end of which is a traditional Dutch wooden shoe, and "golf ball" is actually a ball size like those used in handball.
On the field there are many obstacles you need to pass to finish the stage, and on the end of each stage is a bucket you need to put the ball in.
It was very funny watching us how we try to play it, especially when I threw the ball in some lady's potatoes :D
Oh well, I managed to get away with it.
Later, we ate delicious pancakes with filled with syrup. Mmmm
