In spring it’s time for the Flower Parade Netherlands 2018. The name in Dutch is Bloemencorso Bollenstreek. The flower decorated floats follow a route around Keukenhof. In this post you read when the Bulb Flower Parade takes place and where you can watch it.
When does the spring flower parade Netherlands 2018 take place?
The Dutch love to celebrate flowers and color. There are many Dutch flower parades and fortunately they all take place at a different time. Every season has its own flower. The Zundert Flower Parade Netherlands 2018 takes place at the end of summer. Dahlias bloom from August till far into the autumn season. These make the perfect flowers for the Corso in Zundert.
Mid-April the tulips and hyacinths bloom. Tulips are quite fragile and you won’t see them that often in the Bloemencorso Bollenstreek. The hyacinths are much firmer. Besides, they can be used in different ways. You can use a full flower with stem or just a single petal as you can see in this post.
This year you can view the street parade of the Bloemencorso Bollenstreek on Friday 20 April and Saturday 21 April 2018.
Where can I see the Bulb Flower Parade Netherlands 2018?
On Friday 20 April the nicely scented and colorfully decorated floats leave the huge hall around 2 PM. They head for Noordwijkerhout. At 4 pm you can admire all floats in Noordwijkerhout centre. The corso makes a round at 9 PM. My tip of the day: go see this evening flower parade. It’s amazing and not so crowded.
On Saturday morning 21 April around 9:30 AM the bulb flower parade starts in Noordwijk. It follows a route through the flower villages Voorhout, Sassenheim, Lisse, Hillegom, Bennebroek, Heemstede. At 21:30 the spring flower parade Netherlands 2018 ends in Haarlem.
