All children are invited to gather at the Grote Sint Nikolaaskerk on the last Friday evening in November. Many children come, bringing a shoe to leave for Sinterklaas to fill with treats. The evening is filled with activities: games, singing, dancing, rhyming and pepernoten baking. While the party takes place, Sinterklass works in the church colating yountsters' wish lists. Children return on Saturday to find treats in their shoes.
