Subsequently, the variety game was played with the theme of a song by a boys ‘or girls’ band from the 80s and 90s. The local interest awarded the prize for the street decoration. The prize went to Hazenveld. Then it played Bathmense rock ‘n roll band Kabaal until the late hours.

Friday afternoon it was time for the last round of the neighboring games 2022. All eight neighborhoods competed for the best neighborhood at Harfsens Fest 2022. It was now time for pull and push games, jeu de boules, quiz and creative part. The theme for the creative part was Hellofresh Masterchef. After this, the neighborhoods presented their delicious snacks. Then it was time for the quiz held in the tent. The Orange Association had again asked difficult questions, but they also had a secretive person who had to reveal the neighborhoods. The band Livin’Room then played on the pin. So the atmosphere was good. Then the results of the neighboring games were published. Also this year, the winner was Centrum Zuid-West. Friday night there was a quiet disco party for the kids at De Wever. The band The Rousers played in the tent, which ensured that it became one big party.
Saturday morning’s program started early in the morning with bird shooting at the Klumpenhouwer Family. At 8.30 the first shot was fired by the Sagittarius King 2019, Erik Placespol. No fewer than 335 participants were registered for bird shooting, 130 participants for women’s card shooting and 50 participants for men’s card shooting. After 79 minutes, Herman Korterink sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. Then followed Gerrie Brinkman with the tail, Luc Valkeman with the left wing and Hennie te Winkel the right wing. The redemptive shot came to 480 shots. Amber Klumper shot the bird down, she can call herself Shooter Queen of 2022. Then the procession went to the tent, where the shooting party started under the leadership of De Weekendkracht.
The door mops played in the tent after the shooting party, so that the cozy atmosphere could continue for a while. Afterwards, there was live music on the pin with the one-man band Monoman.
At half past seven it was time for the parade to start, under the musical accompaniment of Soli Deo Gloria. The procession went through the village with the carriage of Archer Queen Amber Klumper in front. The competition was judged by six people. The prizes that were first awarded were for the category of running groups.
