Apart from the Flower Parade of the Bollenstreek being the only event of this calibre that occurs in the springtime, it is the only parade that is constructed and composed of bulb flowers such as hyacinths, tulips and daffodils. It is for this reason that this Flower Parade of the Bollenstreek is known as the face of spring, as no other parade can come close to the unique spring colors and perfumes that surround this one.
The procession consists of about twenty floats and over forty luxurious and special vehicles richly decorated with flowers. For an extra festive character the procession will be accompanied by several bands. There is plenty of room along the whole route for thousands of visitors.
