2013 Bloemencorso Zundert Flower Parade


While most people around the world are getting ready to go back to school or back to their normal routines, the town of Zundert in the Netherlands celebrates September with a world-famous flower festival!

Every year since 1936, Zundert organizes the world’s largest flower festival on the first Sunday of September. Tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world come to see the extraordinary, larger-than-life floats in fantastical characters and shapes. Amazingly, all the floats at the Bloemencorso Zundert Parade are completely covered in dahlia flowers. Some floats can contain half a million blooms!

Here are some photos from the 2013 Bloemencorso Zundert Parade:

Aren’t these floats amazing?

Even more amazing is that this festival is organized by volunteers and it takes a year of work and preparations to make it happen! Parade floats are designed and built by 20 hamlets (small settlement in a rural area). Along with the floats, visitors are treated to music and theater performances during the festival.
