Horse market

The horse market on the third Tuesday in October in Zuidlaren is the largest of its kind
in Europe. Due to Covid regulations there weren't as many animals as other years, however
everybody was happy that the market was back after last year's cancellation.

A lot of extra parking space has been created to cope with all the cars during
this festive weekend prior to the Zuidlaardermarkt as well the market itself.
P22 offers parking space for bicycles, which according this sign costs € 2,-.
