Tomorrow is the first Saturday in August, and that means the most important event of the yearly Gay Pride - the canal parade.
The canal tour consists of 80 large decorated boats that sail along the Prinsengracht canal and the river Amstel, mostly with a lot of music.
The spectacle normally draws up to half a million spectators.
The Canal Parade starts at 2pm on Saturday, and it takes about 3 to 4 hours for the parade to reach the end.
Here is a map with the route of the Amsterdam Gay Pride tour.
The complete event calendar (also in English) is on the official gay pride website.
