Entertainment for 2023 is locked in.
For the Kids
Fun, fun, Fun
This year we will again have a Kermis (Carnival) and an entry ticket ($10) for children, entitles them to unlimited rides all day. For a small extra charge there will be: Face Painting, Pony Rides, Petting Zoo, Sand Painting, a free photo booth, and Kees Honden. Dogs on a lead and responsibly cared for, are welcome. Teenagers will also be asked to pay $10 entry and for that they will be able to compete in the Sjoelbak competition (multiple times) for great prizes, play mini-golf, challenge each other on the Meltdown challenge and we are working on more.

As a new Rotarian and being a musician, taking on the Entertainment Manager role for 2023’s Holland Festival seemed fitting! Ben has 3 main passions in life: photography, travel and music. His business, Plunkett Media, serves his first passion. He has travelled to 8 countries so far and looking forward to travelling somewhere new very soon! Ben isn’t performing currently (his claim to fame is performing on stage to a packed Fed Square in 2011) but loves playing drums and singing when he gets the chance. Ben’s really looking forward to seeing everyone perform and the event as a whole 😄
