THE MOST SPECTACULAR SPRING FESTIVAL IN THE NETHERLANDS
The Bloemencorso of the Bollenstreek is the largest spring festival in The Netherlands. This colourful, fragrant spectacle is celebrated annually during one week of the year by more than one million visitors. The main highlight of the event is the parade on Saturday when the colourful floats and the luxury vehicles decorated in masses of flowers travel the 42 km route. The addition of cheerful music from the marching bands and amusement on and around the floats all contribute to the excitement of the event as experienced by the stream of visitors from home and abroad.
