Oeteldonk becomes the name of 's Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch) during Carnaval (Carnival). The intocht is the parade for the arrival of the prince of Oeteldonk. We were there, thanks to our friends Lex and Maria, wearing the colors of Oeteldonk (red, white and yellow) and watching Dutch people act crazy.

The theme this year was something about a dragon, but it was also a lot about the economy, the recent smoking ban, drinking, and mostly about having fun.

We also went to the grand parade or optocht. It has its own photo page. Someone also posted a pretty good video of both parades on YouTube. You can read more about our Carnival experience in our blog entry.
