The redheads are coming! The redheads are coming!

The three-day gathering, known as "Roodharigendag" in Dutch, invites people from all over the world to celebrate their locks and participate in events like photo shoots, lectures on the history of red hair and art exhibitions.
There was even some speed dating.
"Normally, there's no possible way for me to get lost in a crowd, and so it's kind of a special feeling," Tom Snyder, an American who attended the festival, told The Associated Press. "It's very unique."
Welp, here's hoping the speed dating was successful!
