Christmas market Badhoevedorp; ‘Joy to the World’ [video]

Yesterday there was Christmas market on the Pa Verkuyllaan and Lorentzplein in Badhoevedorp. It was a nice Christmas market. At the end of the afternoon I stopped by the nativity scene. The Ungulates stopped their services. Two shepherds made ​​them ready for departure. While the Ungulates were in the relaxing mode and enjoyed the attention of visitors they seemed to say something.

“Joy to the World”

Festive start rerouting A9 Badhoevedorp [video]

Badhoevedorp – Today there is history written under the A9 viaduct at Sloterweg. Today was the official start for the rerouting of the A9 motorway. This highway runs straight through Badhoevedorp. By 2018 is the A9 highway along the village Badhoevedorp. Circus ‘Acrobatico’ climbed to each other and pulled a cloth from the viaduct and so revealed an Artist’s impression. The Artist’s impression gives an impression about the vision of Badhoevedorp after 2018. The celebrations under the viaduct consisted of inspiring speeches, great performance of dance school ‘Ponne’, a spectacular performance by Circus ‘Acrobatico’ and a beautiful song sung by ‘Meezingkoor’ Choir Badhoevedorp.
