The Sinterklaas event begins with children decorating paper miters. At 1 o'clock the children sing Sinterklaas songs to greet Sint and three Pieten. Sinterklaas spoke with all the children, parents and other volunteers. The Pieten distributed pepernoten and other candy. Sinterklaas left at 2:30 and the children then opened their presents. Dutch foods, including stroopwafels, speculaas cookies, tangerines, poffertjes and chocolate milk were available throughout the event.
