ROTTERDAM - In Rotterdam South Park, 649 people took part in the Netherlands biggest ever picnic. The event broke last year's record of 525 picnickers in Amsterdam's Vondel Park.

The picnickers in Rotterdam were treated to performances by singer Glennis Grace and rapper Yes-R.

In Hellevoetsluis, driving rain dashed hopes of breaking the dog-walking record. 567 dogs and their owners took part in the attempt. Unfortunately, it was 150 too few to break the Dutch record.
