Rondje Handvastwater is a household name in Enkhuizen and surroundings. A well-attended and free play-fest for young and old. Have the time of your life on the Twist Ladder, Red Bull, Water Roller and Dragon Run. Or would you rather play a game of Blow Football? And who will be Enkhuizen’s strongest? Measure your strength with the XL and junior Kop van Jut.

Rondje Handvastwater will be bustling with energy again this year thanks to the unbridled efforts of, among others, the neighbors, Scouting group Mercury, Youth Fire Brigade Enkhuizen, Toneelgroep TGD, Kaatje Stip, Sika’s Super Smooth Schmink, Bottle up & Go, Schermclub Enkhuizen, SIGI (Cintura), the Samba Gang, Peter the Organ Man, Kidzdance ESC and the many volunteers!
