A boy jumps for joy following a parade Thursday night celebrating the end of the school term in the Netherlands. I was leaning out a second-floor window to get these pictures.
A marching band kicks off the 8 p.m. parade.
A drum majorette raises her baton, as another marching band joins the parade.
The drum corps.
Children in high spirits, with summer holidays ahead.
All children were presented with flowers, balloons, toys, ribbons and/or medals to mark the occasion.
Young judo students.
More sports enthusiasts.
Yet another marching band. The little boy in front helps "direct" the music.
One little girl was carrying a butterfly net; another was wearing a swimming innertube.
More proud teachers, parents and students.
