Vacantie kinderfeest

Report about the holiday party for Groningen schoolchildren, held on the moors near Rolde, on July 19 1923.

Accompanied by a band, a group of Groningen schoolchildren head for the train station, and then travel to Rolde in Drenthe, where they will spend the day on the moor. In Drenthe, the children play in the sand, and act out a boxing match between the champions Battling Siki and Georges Carpentier. At the end of the day, everyone returns contentedly to Groningen.
