Every year a big party is thrown in Amsterdam in honor of the Queen. Celebrated on April 30 (the former Queen Juliana's birthday), the city comes to a halt and most of the public transport shuts down, or is heavily slowed as the whole city turns into a street party. There are markets, fireworks and festivities everywhere, lasting until the early evening. Everyone wears orange clothes to pay a tribute to the Queen’s lineage in the House of Oranje.
