The peak of the festival is during the Canal Parade, a parade of boats of large variety on the first Saturday of August, which usually goes from Oosterdok over the Nieuwe Herengracht, the Amstel river and the Prinsengracht to Westerdok. In 2014, the first Jewish boat and the first Moroccan boat participated in the Amsterdam Pride Canal Parade. Dana International was on the Jewish boat, as well as the Fokkens twins (Louise Fokkens and Martine Fokkens), who are famous in the Netherlands for having worked 50 years as sex workers in Amsterdam’s Red Light District before their retirement earlier in 2014.
