Showing off millions of flowers. That is what the participants of the large flower parades of Sint Jansklooster and Vollenhove do. Every August, tens of thousands of people come to marvel at the artistic dahliareuzen (large flower parade vehicles) that are part of the immaterial heritage of the Netherlands.
Feel like more after the Sint Jansklooster parade? Make sure not to miss the Vollenhove event eight days later. On the fourth Saturday of August, thousands of people enjoy the atmosphere of a great parade. In addition to the marvellous vehicles, they can also listen to great marching bands. This combined with the attractive backdrop of the old Zuiderzee city gives the Vollenhove parade its very own character.
