PROGRAMME SPRING FESTIVAL
While we would have liked to report otherwise, in 2021 Bloemencorso Bollenstreek will also be unable to parade through the streets of the Bulb district from Noordwijk to Haarlem. This week the executive committee of the Bloemencorso Foundation has had no other choice but to take this sad decision. The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused us to change our plans. This year we will not be inviting the world to visit the Bloemencorso, but we are planning to bring it to the world.
Follow us on Social Media over the coming weeks and months and be part of this unique experience.
BEHIND THE SCENES
For three days from Wednesday 14th to Friday morning 16th April you can watch the art of decorating the floats in The Klinkenberg tennis hall in Sassenheim. Hundreds of volunteers are busily attaching the millions of flowers. With luck you may get a chance to give them a hand.
On Friday evening 16th April you can view the Corso in a different light. At 9 p.m. we illuminate the floats with thousands of lamps as they drive through the charming village of Noordwijkerhout. An experience not to be missed.
On Sunday 18th April, the floats are on show one last time in the historical floral city of Haarlem. Use the opportunity to take perfect pictures surrounded by music and entertainment while enjoying a drink at one of the cafes. At 5 p.m. we wave the floats a final goodbye.
Spring Photography Competition
Bloemencorso Bollenstreek is organising a photography competition in four categories.

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.
While we would like to report otherwise, these spring festivities will not take place in 2021 as described above. The Covid-19 pandemic causes us to change our plans. This year we are not inviting the world to visit the parade but we are bringing the parade to the world.
