Gigantic Flower Sculpture Festival in Holland

If you’re already planning out a holiday route for next fall, be sure to include Holland to your agenda. The huge parade floats with the flower arrangements, 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 every 1st Sunday of September.

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