In the southern Netherlands, they are crazy about their flower parades. This is a long tradition, often passed down from the grandparents of the current generation. We feature 3 parades, Zundert (1 Sept 2019), Lichtenvoorde and Valkenswaard (both 8 Sept 2019). On Sunday evening and Monday the floats can be viewed. We include entrance and, when available, seats in the grandstand to view the parade.
