Flowers from the Heart

On Sunday 21st March, the first day of spring, the Bloemencorso Bollenstreek together with local marketing organisations took to the road to distribute bunches of flowers in the municipalities in and around the area where the bulbs are cultivated. These are the towns and villages thorough which the parade would normally travel. It was an amazing day!

Time for our volunteers

In a period when minutes seem to last for hours, time can also race past us. We remember hearing for the first time that the parade was cancelled. What a disappointment but at the same time it made us even more determined to shine in 2021 with all the glory […]

Press Release 12th March 2021

Flowers from the Heart Campaign: Bloemencorso Bollenstreek may not be riding this year from Noordwijk to Haarlem, but that does not mean we have taken a back seat. To keep the heart of the parade pumping we have already presented a package of alternative activities […]

Press Release 21st January 2021

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 {...}

Planting the hyacinths

Bloemencorso Bollenstreek relies on hyacinths. These highly fragrant bulb flowers were always traditionally grown in the bulb district. The bulbs are planted in October and in the spring harvested to decorate the floats. Here the Board of Bloemencorso Bollenstreek Foundation sybolically plants the first bulbs by hand to mark the start of the following year's event.

Portraits from the parade

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.
