Today was the annual Kopje Cultuur Festival in Steenwijk and our little city was buzzing with activity.

The children were well entertained and enjoyed the drumming lessons on the square. Each child had a pair of drumsticks and a bucket to bang on.

There was also an art exhibition in the Sint Clemens Church with an artist doing paintings of the visitors. I also managed to get a photo of the beautiful church organ.

Outside the church was a man blowing glass and making ornaments. The skill involved in this is just amazing and I just stood there and watched as glass was heated up, coloured and shaped into beautiful creations.

The puppet show drew quite a crowd as well…
