The World’s Largest Flower Parade Features Unbelievable Floats Covered With Millions Of Dhalias


By Raven Fon

I have seen some beautiful parades in my life, but nothing quite like this year’s Corso Zundert.

The Corso Zundert parade happens every year, and has been going on since 1936 when it was first founded. The parade is a celebration of what the Netherlands is most well-known for: their iconic flowers.

The annual event takes place in the small town of Zundert.  Twenty different teams of volunteers from various hamlets compete to see who has the best designed float in the parade.

Is it just flowers put together in an elaborate fashion with vibrant dahlia flowers? Heck no! These floats are decked out with moving mechanical parts and are joined by marching bands and other performers as well.

The winner for this year’s  parade was titled “Dangerous Transportation.” It featured a massive dragon and was designed by Tiggelaar. All of the 20 parade floats can be seen here.
