Soccer World Cup Comes To Zandvoort

It may seems like a distant memory now, but the Dutch football team managed to get into the final of the Soccer World Cup in July. Despite the bitter disappointment that followed, the memory of an exciting 2 weeks is still strong in many people's minds.

In Zandvoort, the 2 weeks was celebrated by orange flags and banners everywhere; Dutch flags hung out of windows and shops and bars all made the most of the event by 'dressing' their buildings in ORANGE.

Here is a photo of the Laurel & Hardy bar in Haltestraat adorned in orange and green. They even created a football pitch effect around two serving areas using artificial grass. It made for a striking visual impact (pardon the pun!) and was a great hit with visitors.
