Aruba celebrates the birthday of King Willem Alexander every year on April 27.

King's Day is an official Aruban holiday as the Netherlands, Aruba and the other Dutch Caribbean islands celebrate the birthday of King Willem Alexander every year on April 27.

An official government ceremony in honor of King Willem Alexander is usually held at the Wilhelmina Park in downtown Oranjestad, where the public can enjoy a parade of Aruba’s military and scouting groups.
Numerous sporting events, fun-filled street fairs, kite flying contests, and family-friendly celebrations are taking place all around the island.

Keep in mind:
As King's day is an official Aruban holiday, you can expect shops, gasoline stations, supermarkets to close early or stay closed the entire day.
