The fifth edition of this event stretches over two days, starting with “pre-redhead day” activities taking place on the 4th September and ending with the official celebration on 5th September.
So one this day, what can one expect to see? Well the city centre of Breda opens its large square at 12pm where between 3,000 and 5,000 redheads from over 40 countries will participate in a variety of artistic group photo shoots.
