Friday the 15th of August, will see the opening of the NVN (Dutch chapter of the ZNA) show in Arcen Holland. This is the largest koi show outside Japan and well worth seeing

This show is the largest koi show in Europe and one of the largest in the world.
Last year the show featured 64 show vats containing nearly 500 koi as well 138 stands selling a variety of goods. For those of you who have never visited Arcen, the show is held in the grounds of a beautiful castle and entrance include access to the castle's grounds and beautiful gardens.

Well worth the trip.
