This is the Most Creative Flower Parade In the World!

Zundert, a small town in the Netherlands located at the Belgian border, hosts the world’s biggest flower parade, featuring twenty floats of twenty meters long and ten meters high. This year, 2014, saw an exceptionally beautiful and most creative display of flower floats for the parade, in every perceiveable shape, color and idea. It is a truly amazing feast for the eyes. 

Don't forget to check out some of the videos as well as the photos, as some of these floats even move in very creative and fun ways.

The community of Zundert lives for its parade. Each and every person in Zundert, young and old, is involved in some way or other in construction of the floats and the keeping of the flower fields. It really has the community in its grip, there’s no escape if you live here.

Float designers and competing districts in Zundert are completely free to decide what they design and build. The only limitations are the sizes of the floats and the general statement that the parade is a dahlia flower parade. Use of other materials is allowed. The parade does not have a theme.

Zundert, incidentally, is also the birth place of the famous painter Vincent van Gogh.
