Every year on the first Sunday in September,  tweenty groups compete in the Bloemencorso, or “flower parade,” which is an annual tradition in many parts of the Netherlands and Belgium, for the title of best float. The 76-year-old Dutch tradition is a feast for the eyes, featuring an array of elaborate sculptures made from thousands of dahlias that tower through the streets of Zundert. In this event, many sculptures and floats are elaborately covered in flowers and displayed in colorful parades. The volunteer groups work throughout the year growing flowers (dahlias only) and building the floats.
