The highlight of the Amsterdam Gay Pride weekend is the famous Canal Parade on Saturday afternoon. Where most parades use trucks, Amsterdam has boats! 80 spectacular decorated boats with beautiful (and scantily clad) boys and girls will sail from 14:00 till 18:00 through the Prinsengracht and Amstel river. The gay parade is watched by 300,000 spectators every year, so you better get there early to secure your spot along the canals!


Enjoy your pride week. Rainbows guaranteed!
