Last week the “Leidse Lakenfeesten” took place, a festival filled with performances, events and good fun.
Throughout the city there is a lot to see and hear on and around the canals. It is definitely worth making a boat trip during this festival.
A favourite and fixed event during the Lakenfeesten is the Dragonboat race, spurred by drummers, ebthusiastic teams of rowers compete to be the first that pushes the dragon’s head over the finish line. This race is held at the Boommarkt and the observant ones among us have probably already taken notice of a quite familiar boat in the background of the photo..
Have fun on the water!
