Corso Zundert is the legendary parade of giant floats adorned with up to a million dahlia flowers that twist through the idyllic streets of Zundert, Netherlands.
This year 19 teams created floats inspired by Vincent van Gogh, who was born in Zundert 162 years ago.
These flower interpretations of van Gogh’s most famous works are mesmerizing.
Started in 1936, the parade celebrates the region’s reputation as a global supplier of dahlia flowers, an area now covering 33 hectares (81 acres) of 600,000 dahlia bulbs in fifty different species.
“In Zundert, in the South of the Netherlands, we are crazy about our flower parade,” according to the event website.
“Our grannies and granddads started it in 1936 and we still can’t have enough of it.”
“By the First Sunday of September the fever burns within us. Will the moving floats be finished in time?”
Are there enough dahlias? And who is going to win this time?”
“Come to Zundert and share the experience!”
