Summer flower parade

12 August 16:00 14 August 17:00

The second Saturday in August is traditionally the day of the summer flower parade in the Bollenstreek: The Flower Parade Rijnsburg.

The Flower Parade Rijnsburg runs every year on the 2nd Saturday in August and is composed of 12 floats, music cars, flower-decorated passenger cars and music corps. In addition, the themes on the floats are supported and represented by more than 100 extras. Every year this special flower parade attracts more than 350,000 visitors. This event is also successfully broadcast annually on national TV (broadcaster MAX). Flower Parade Rijnsburg distinguishes itself from other corsos by the use of hundreds of types of flowers that are processed by professional arrangers. The first flower parade in Rijnsburg took place in 1946. This makes the parade one of the oldest in the Netherlands.
