Parade in the Netherlands Celebrates Vincent van Gogh


flowers-1

The Corso Zundert is a parade of giant floats which traverses the streets of Zundert in the Netherlands covered in thousands of dahlia flowers. This year, the floats were inspired by the works of the great Vincent van Gogh, who was born in Zundert 162 years ago.

“In Zundert, in the South of the Netherlands, we are crazy about our flower parade,” writes the event’s website. “Our grannies and granddads started it in 1936 and we still can’t have enough of it. By the First Sunday of September the fever burns within us. Will the moving floats be finished in time? Are there enough dahlias? And who is going to win this time? Come to Zundert and share the experience!”
