.Every September, people from all over the Netherlands gather in the town of Zundert to watch extravagant dahlia-covered floats parade down the streets for the “Bloemencorso Zundert,” an annual parade celebrating the region’s many varieties of dahlias. This year, the 19 teams competing for the best and brightest display honored the town’s most famous son, Vincent Van Gogh
Another year, another Corso Zundert, the legendary parade of giant floats adored with thousands of dahlia flowers that twist through the narrow streets of Zundert, Netherlands. This year 19 teams took inspiration from the work of Vincent van Gogh who was born in Zundert 162 years ago. The towering floats borrow colors, motifs, and imagery from van Gogh’s painting including several interpretations of the artist’s self-portraits.
