Amsterdam canal parade – great spectacle!

Crowds lined the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam this afternoon to watch the annual Amsterdam Canal Parade. Part of the gay pride weekend and now in its 9th year, the parade is one of the bigggest visitor events in Amsterdam.

My wife and I were there, too, cameras in hand, joining the estimated 250,000+ visitors who crowded central Amsterdam. We took a few pictures!
