EXHIBITION OF THE FLOATS
Our world famous parade ends in the historical city of Haarlem. The floats arrive on Saturday at the end of the day. On Sunday this Spectacular Spring Festival culminates with a top event centred around an exhibition of the floats. This is the moment to take photographs! The party ends at 5 p.m. when we wave farewell to the floats as they leave Haarlem.
Paid parking is generally the case in Haarlem city centre. Follow the P signs to available parking locations.
Haarlem has a train station and is easily accessible by bus. Look at http://www.9292.nl for the easiest way to reach the city. You can also take a bike or walk to Haarlem's attractive historical city centre.
20TH TO 22ND APRIL
BEHIND THE SCENES
For three days from Wednesday 20th to Friday morning 22nd April you can watch the art of decorating the floats in De Klinkenberg tennis hall in Sassenheim. Hundreds of volunteers are busily attaching the millions of flowers onto the floats. With luck you may get a chance to give them a hand.
On Friday evening 22nd April you can view the parade 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.
