    THEY DID WELL....CAUGHT THE RING....

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This RINGRIJDEN & SJEZENRINGRIJDEN takes place all over ZEELAND, my PROVINCE.

    Go to the VVV (Tourist information office, we have oh so many...) and ask for info. You then will have the days and months and places where these competitions/festivities take place and I can recommend these events to you: wonderful days!

    N.B. Look at the nice kerchief the women wear: they are crocheted by themselves or their (grand-)mothers........
