This is a new event near the harbour of Vlaardingen, it was supposed to be the follow up to the "Herring & Beerfest" (Haring en Bierfeest).
The Herring & Beerfest was a yearly event which has been here since i can remember. It actually started in 1973 when Vlaardingen celebrated it 700 year anniversary.
But this year it was replaced and combined with the provincial waterdays.. But for me and the people i have spoken too it was a real disappointment. The events that where organised where ok but it was much smaller as the Herring & Bierfest was. The only place you noticed the event was on one bank of the Harbour, you could walk in the city center and never know there was something special going on...
Sorry i want the Herring & Bierfest back....

Vlaardingen has it problems with high water once and a while. An area which floods easy is near the new waterway (nieuwe waterweg) the area around "de Pelmolen" can be subject to flooding when the water in the river is high. Keep this in mind when you park your car in this area.

When you've visited the city center of Vlaardingen or been at the fishery museum just walk along over the railway. You will then see a relativly new brug which is the last bridge in Vlaardingen before the Nieuwe Waterweg. Near this bridge you will see this monument with a ruler which displays the NAP (New Amsterdam Peil (level)). This monument has been placed here bij the dutch "rijkswaterstaat" the dutch departement which concerns itself with the river and roadways.
