Gigantic Flower Sculpture Festival in Holland

If you’re already planning out a holiday root for next fall, be sure to include Holland to your agenda. The huge floats with the flower sculptures, created for the Bloemencorso flower festival in Zundert, will make your jaw drop and definitely give you amazing pictures to take back home. Organized since 1936, the festival takes place on every 1st Sunday of September.

Every year, the parade consists of around 20 different floats, the construction of which is non-commercial and totally volunteer. The structures, created from dahlias only, are put during during the summer by the neighborhoods of a town that’s home to 20.000 people only. As the dahlias can only stay fresh for so long, they are added on the last weekend before the parade. The locals say Bloemencorso is completely addictive, so make sure to be around on September 1-2 next year!

    I am from the Netherlands, and to be honest, I think these flower sculptures are been made by women and man in the age 50+, definately not on weed… I don’t know if you have ever been high, it doesn’t make you want to do this stuff, it makes you want to sit on a couch and eat chips…

    aha :) I can tell you, all the times I used weed I was far to lame to do anything productive… But on the other hand, I did watch a screensaver 5 hours in a row, believing it was some sort of Lord of the Rings movie. So who knows

    For the record, it’s not legal in the Netherlands. This is a common misconception.
