Enjoy this weekend the unique Flower Parade of the Bollenstreek. Colourful floats decorated with bulb flowers such as hyacinths, tulips and daffodils will be towed past you along the route.
Between the 19th and the 23rd of April the annual Flower Parade takes place. In Dutch this parade is called Bloemencorso.
On Saturday April 22, the 70th edition of the Flower Parade of the Bollenstreek travels the 40 km long route from Noordwijk to Haarlem.
On Sunday April 23 all the parade floats are on display at the Gedempte Oude Gracht/Nassaulaan.

Apart from the Flower Parade of the Bollenstreek being the only event of this calibre that occurs in the springtime, it is the only parade that is constructed and composed of bulb flowers such as hyacinths, tulips and daffodils. It is for this reason that this Flower Parade of the Bollenstreek is known as the face of spring, as no other parade can come close to the unique spring colours and perfumes that surround this one.
The procession consists of about twenty floats and over forty luxurious and special vehicles richly decorated with flowers. For an extra festive character the procession will be accompanied by several bands. There is plenty of room along the whole route for thousands of visitors.
Since the Flower Parade is an outdoor event, it’s accessible for everyone.
