Sinterklaas is finally here
WILLEMSTAD – After a long wait it was finally the time of the year again. Sinterklaas is here. With beating hearts the children of the island watched Sinterklaas arrive in the harbor last Saturday.
Sinterklaas arrived at 9 am and after a warm welcome he and his assistants, the Black Pete’s went to the Brion square in Otrabanda.
This year, for the first time, there was a group that protested against the Sinterklaas event, and the “Zwarte Piet” (Black Pete) figure, because of the alleged racist character thereof.
