About the event
For this event we will be mixing two things present in Dutch Culture: The Beer Cantus and Carnaval. It is customary to dress up during Carnaval in the Netherlands. You can dressup as anything really and nothing is a bad idea. Moreover the worse you dress the better you are doing! XD. Some of you will be unfamilar with the dressing up. For Carnaval you don't have to go all out you can also get a decent "costume" for less than €20. You can also put on some things that you find at party shops listed below. Mix and match, just make sure not to come to the party with normal clothes, you will feel very WIERD if you do!
Before I list the party shops that are here in Breda. A Cantus is, explained in the most simple form, sitting at a long table drinkning beer with your friends and people around you while singing songs together! We will of course indulge you in some Dutch music classics, but also there will be plenty of songs in other languages. Most in English of course ;) If you think, or like me, know that your singing sucks. Nobody cares, you'll be having too many drinks to remember how bad 95% of people are at singing. Just make fun of your best friend, laugh and have a pint to drink away the pain :P
Now the party shops:
Fop-sjop -> Boschstraat 148, 4811 GK Breda
Pipoos Breda -> Lange Brugstraat 43, 4811 WP Breda (mainly face pain and that stuff)
Gonnie's Winkeltje -> Boschstraat 162, 4811 GL Breda
SoLow Breda -> Ginnekenstraat 14, 4811 JH Breda (in the back is most of the stuff)
Also the search term "Carnavalskleding" in google will get you quite far. There are many things that can be ordered online. The Netherlands is a small country, so delivery is pretty fast. Even so make sure to do it on time!
