Founded in 1936, the annual Corso Zundert parade is a celebration of one of the Netherlands most popular exports: flowers. The event is held every year in the small town of Zundert where 20 teams of volunteers from different hamlets compete for the best designed parade float. More than being covered almost completely in vibrant dahlia flowers, the float designs often incorporate moving elements and are accompanied by marching bands and other performers along the parade route.

This year’s winner titled “Dangerous Transportation” featured a giant dragon and was designed by the Tiggelaar hamlet. You can see a full listing of all 20 parade floats here.

More photos of the 2016 event were shot by John DG Photography, and you can watch a video of the entire parade below. See our coverage of previous years: 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
