  • Day 3 - Zundert Flower Parade

    Today is Parade Day, so don’t forget your camera! (Grandstand Ticket Included)

    Spend the day in the pretty town of Zundert where you will enjoy the huge annual flower parade and absorb the spectacular carnival atmosphere.

    See colourful floats, with hand-made creations sculpted from blooms of dahlias. The streets and local bars come alive with live music and street theatre.

    The parade floats at the Zundert Flower Parade are designed and built by the twenty hamlets. Everything is done by volunteers, even the cultivation of the dahlias.

    In order to prepare the floats for the big parade, hundreds of people join together. The art of building the Zundert Parade floats has been passed down from generation to generation.
