Koningsdag, where to go?

Hello, can anyone advise on how to spend tommorow? At what time the events on the streets start?

I expect it's just a crazy day and there's no point for too much planning, but i'd like to know 3-4 main places where there's a lot going on and worth a visit.

Also the weather is not looking too good, so I'm not sure what will happen tomorrow if it'll start raining?

Generally you will get wet ;-)

Looks like just few showers so not too bad. Noordermarkt, Jordaan, Leidseplein and Noordermarkt are normally ok. Noordermarkt was jumping all day last year.
