In the Netherlands, the 75th Bloemencorso Flower Parade Rijnsburg will begin on Friday, August 12. That milestone and its UNESCO International Intangible Cultural Heritage designation are cause for a grand celebration under the ‘FEAST’ theme. For three days, there will be plenty to see. Floats, bandwagons, and cars will boast no fewer than 300,000 flowers and plants arranged in the most beautiful, unusual ways.

The hundreds of musicians and performers make the Flower Parade Rijnsburg a moving theater production.
