Pram Boat Race during the Festival Week
A spectacle on the water and a real Aalsmeer tradition: welcome to the Pram Boat Race. Festival Week in Aalsmeer comes to an end on 14 September 2019. Each year there is a different theme and almost all the boats (or prams) customise their barges to the theme. The result is a colourful, musical party, which is not only fun to join in, but just as much fun to watch from the waterfront.
A pram is a flat wooden barge, formerly used to transport the flowers to the flower auction. The teams follow a course over the Aalsmeer waters, performing various tasks. A true treasure hunt for motor boats.
