This Small Town's Annual Flower Parade Has The Most Amazing Floats

September 8, 2016

In Zundert, a small village in the south of Netherlands near the Belgium border, there's a flower parade every year called Corso Zundert. It started 80 years ago as a celebration of the birthday of the former queen.

The first parades were mostly decorated bikes on a single farmer's cart. After the war, the parade evolved into a big event with different districts who all compete to win the parade. This, along with the lack of themes, made the floats in the 60s and 80s bigger and better, while keeping an artistic aspect.

Everything is made by volunteers who spend the whole summer in a tent creating the floats. Nobody gets paid and the flowers are specifically grown for the floats. Everything is financed by sponsors.

The whole village lives for the event and winning Corso Zundert is one of the best things an inhabitant of Zundert can experience.

Here is a collection of this year's floats...
