The Bulb Region: The Netherlands Flower Parade 2018 is coming!

The flower parade of the bulb region is coming to us soon and it’s going to be amazing!

The hugely popular (and most famous) flower parade is due to begin on April 18th and travels from Noordwijk to Haarlem, where it finishes on April 22nd. This is the bulb region, which is extremely fitting and truly beautiful at this time of year.

As you all know (we bang on about it enough), the bulb region is the region where all of the tulip fields are. This stretches between Haarlem and the Hague and brings literally tons of us to the region every year to stare at the tulips in wonder. This flower parade is an opportunity to showcase these amazing flowers. This is then literally put ‘on-show’ to the public. That way you don’t have to keep checking how the tulip fields are doing or catching expensive trains between fields.
The flower parade consists of main places where you can spot the parade. But, where can you can go, you ask? Check the routes here (Noordwijkerhout or Noordwijk-Haarlem)
to know when and where to go. Along with this route, over 40 vehicles are decorated with flowers, along with over 20 floats rammed with even more flowers. This will be accompanied by bands and lots of music.

Look how cool it is!
This parade is not one to be missed, so don’t forget to check out the website, buy your tickets (if you want to be seated – it’s free otherwise), check the route and head on down, on the specified day.
Can’t make it? Don’t worry, there is a flower parade in Zundert later on in the year!
