Bloemencorso in Zundert

On Sunday me and Koen went to see the Bloemencorso, Flower Parade, in Zundert. We visited this yearly spectacle last year for the first time, see blogpost 'Bloemencorso in Zundert'.
The leading up to the parade is a lot of fun to watch. Rival neighborhoods walking through the streets with their member T-shirt on. Staying up all night, working hard to get every Dahlia into place. Knowing now how their float came out, nervous what the other floats will look like.

They know about the idea, in the winter of 2011 every neighborhood showed their design with a model. After that I think everyones keeps their progress top secret.

This makes the impact with the first glimpse you get, when the float is turning the corner of the street, even bigger.
20 floats in total, making a parade on one day, being exhibited the next and turned into bits and pieces again on Tuesday. A wonderfull event which will be added to the UNESCO list hopefully very soon!
