Canal Pride Parade: Amsterdam’s August Party [Video]

Looking at a list of the holidays in Amsterdam as you prepare for a summer trip, you might think you’ve missed the biggest city-wide party if you aren’t going to be there for Queen’s Day. While it’s true that being in Amsterdam for Queen’s Day is awesome, there are plenty of other fantastic celebrations throughout the year – including the Amsterdam Canal Pride Parade in early August.

Want a taste of the festivities you could experience if you’re in Amsterdam this August? Here’s a video from the Canal Pride Parade in 2008:
