Saturday starts with a parade. There is a diverse parade with floats, marching bands and colorful costumes. The Parade starts at the Dommelstraat at 12:45 and snakes its way through Dommelstraat, Stationsplein, Vestdijk, Ten Haeghestraat, Kerkstraat, Wal, Stadhuisplein, Bilderdijklaan to the Geldropseweg. Watching the parade is a wonderful way to start the weekend.
