King’s Day Celebration
Did you know Aruba is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands? Join the kingdom on April 27, 2017 as they celebrate the birthday of King Willem Alexander. This annual event is an official holiday held in honor of the king, and you’ll discover flea markets, kite competitions, sporting events and other family friendly activities. Traditionally, because the royal family is the House of Orange, people dress in orange clothes, paint their faces and hair orange and wear orange crowns. So pack your orange gear and celebrate with them!
