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 town of Noordwijkerhout. An experience not to be missed.
It is possible to view the Floats and decorated vehicles from 3 p.m. on Friday afternoon when they are lined up in the streets of this bulb growing village. Local businesses meanwhile organise outdoor activities. We turn on the lights at 9 p.m. and drive through the streets of Noordwijkerhout. After the chairman has announced the winning floats, a special guest opens the Corso. Want to cheer on the participants? See below for details of the route.

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.
