When it comes to flowers and floral parades, the Dutch never stop, not even in August, and instead of thinking only about distant shores where to spend their holidays, they find the time to celebrate showing off what they have most beautiful and colorful in this magnificent land : the flowers.
Is no less the Rijnsburgcorso which takes place every year on the second Saturday of August and consists of 12 floats, cars decorated with flowers and musical groups. Every year this special flower show attracts over 350,000 visitors. This event is also successfully broadcast each year on national TV (broadcaster MAX).
An extra (free) event is the Flower Parade Show, which will be held on Friday evening, August 10th at 7 pm at Bloemenveiling Royal FloraHolland, Laan van Verhof 3, 2231 BZ in Rijnsburg. Here all vehicles will be lined up to be admired, all surrounded by a music and entertainment program.
Saturday, August 11th The Flower Parade will ride a real triumphal procession through Rijnsburg, Katwijk and Noordwijk. The theme of the 73rd flower parade in Rijnsburg is “Around the world”. New Route The Katwijkse Boulevard occupies an even more prominent place on the trail this year. As a result, the parking will be closed for a few hours. The part in the route Wilhelminastraat, Tramstraat, Zeeweg, Karel Doormanlaan, Industrieweg and Biltlaan thus concludes with this change. The route will be extended by a part of this district where the bands will also participate.
