    SEROOSKERKE DAY: AN EMM CONCERT

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the highlights on every Serooskerke Day is the performance of brass band EMM, well known to regular readers of this page.

    They usually start around noon and play at least an hour or so. The choice of songs is suitable for casual listeners. This year they played for example a marvellous interpretation of Toto songs, excellently performed under harsh circumstances.

    You can find EMM on almost all Annual village Days on the former island of Walcheren, but the concert at home in Serooskerke is of course the best!

    e ever enjoyable and addicting carrousel!

    Not really typical folklore from Serooskerke, but well...it's all about fun isn't it. Only sometimes I wonder, who enjoy most: the children or their parents!

    1 ride is 1 Euro. Unfortunately the maximum age is 6 years.

    n this game, 8 feet got fixed on a plank and you have to run as fast as possible.

    This guarantees some of the most hilarious situations in Serooskerke ever! Actually the children hardly can't finish without coaching!

    Playback shows are, especially for the kids, a great way to make fun together.

    They dress up like their famous idols and practise some dance steps and other characteristics and move their lips like they sing themselves. The audience will clap and encourage them enthousiastically.

    In Serooskerke you can enjoy this event on special occasions like Queens Day (30/4).

    SEROOSKERKE DAY: FANCY FAIR

    On Queens Day kids may like to show their creativity by painting or drawing on a white t-shirt that is supplied by the organisation.

    Not surprisingly most of the boys copy either Ajax or Feyenoord soccer outfits. Girls seems to be more into flowers, angels, animals and that kinda stuff.

    SEROOSKERKE DAY: FARMERS EXHIBITION

    Queens Days (30th April-each year) on Serooskerke are especially for the kids big fun.

    One of the festivities involves the bicycle decoration competition.

    At this occasion kids -or actually their parents- are encouraged to decorate their bicycles or other means of transport.

    Of course they use an overload of orange -the national colour- and the colours of our flag (red,white and blue). Materials are supplied by the committee.

    So...if you're around with your kids...

    Queens day: again a playback show

    by Bonobo2005 Written Jul 5, 2004

    Karaoke is for Asia, in Serooskerke playback show AND karaoke is big!

    One after the other playback show is organised, of course no real singing, but more focusing on imitating your idol on stage!

    A real DJ was present to organise the playbackshows and karaoke.

    Like everywhere the kids love the hitmusic, identify with the stars...and dance!

    Are these the Rolling Stones?

    Queens Day: shooting gallery

    by Bonobo2005 Written Jul 5, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shooting gallery is the single best attraction for young teenage boys in Serooskerke at Queens Day

    Years after years you practised your waterpistol, but once a year -on Queens Day -you may shoot the real thing. I heard of some teens they are saving up for months to participate in this!

    This goes wrong...

    Queens Day: hmm... what's the name of this game ?

    by Bonobo2005 Written Jul 5, 2004

    On a huge inflated cushion and with an elastic robe around your waist you have to bring a toy brick as far as possible.

    This is the game I wanted to join, but I wasn't allowed...too old...too much weight...:-(

    The cushion is not available for the children of Serooskerke.

    Mr. Feyenoord is too late!
