Sinterklaas and Black Petes are here
WILLEMSTAD - True to tradition, Sinterklaas and his Black Petes arrived in Curaçao 2.5 weeks before the celebration of Saint Nicolas.
Thousands of children waited with a beating heart until they saw the boat coming in the distance with cheerfully colored Petes on board and the ship. Once on land, the Petes gave a nice show while Saint Nicolas was brought to the Wilhelminaplein on horseback where various activities were organized.
In the coming days, the Saint brings various visits to schools and businesses to distribute sweets and gifts.
