Bloemencorso Flower Parade Description

Bloemencorso Flower Parade - Parade | Outdoor Event in Amsterdam.

The Bloemencorso Flower Parade is an annual parade and float competition held in April throughout the town of Zundert in The Netherlands, just two hours south of Amsterdam. Zundert is originally famous for being the birthplace of Vincent Van Gogh, but now claims much of its fame from this historic event.

Started in 1936, the Bloemencorso Flower Parade is internationally acclaimed parade featuring stunning floats each year. The town of Zundert is divided into twenty districts, each of which constructs a float to enter into the yearly competition and parade. The floats are often quite elaborate and decorated entirely in freshly bloomed flowers.

The night before the parade, the floats are illuminated in Noordwijk. On the day of the parade, the floats travel 40 km to Haarlem where they rest and are put on display for the night. A panel of judges votes on the winning float, which is a huge accomplishment for the winning district. Hundreds of thousands of spectators flock to Zundert each year to witness the festivities.

There is no price of admission to watch the Bloemencorso Flower Parade but good luck getting a front row spot at this crazy popular parade.
