On 9 September, it will be that time of year again: the annual Flower Parade in Lichtenvoorde. Since 1929, thousands of volunteers have chipped in each year to build this impressive sight. You'll find sufficient pitches and tribunes along the route – which spans an incredible 2.5 km – from where you can take in the parade. Flower Parade presenters will be located at the tribunes and can tell you many interesting facts about the wagons and showcorpses that pass along the route. Experience the parade with even more intensity!
Once the parade is done, all wagons will be on display at the exhibition grounds that were finished especially for this event. There, you can admire the wagons at your leisure.
