"Flower Parade" Flower Parade Tip by Moofie
Flower Parade, Haarlem: 6 reviews and 5 photos
We didn't get to see the parade at the start, sort of difficult with a 4 year old in tow. When he needs to nap, he naps!
Spent the Sunday morning walking around the market and marvelling at the work that went into the displays. We were blessed with gorgeous weather so the perfume form the3 flowers was fantastic.
An amazing amount of work went into the displays but the others things going on add to the experience. The choir was good, maybe not brilliant but enthusiastic and generally well performed.
The duo sang well after the choir, well worth a listen.
The roaming costumed birds were amazing, played well with the crowd and fantastic costumes!
The guys walking round as the cast from "Wizard of OZ" were good too...unfortunately the cowardly Lion wasn't so cowardly and a lot of children ended up crying XD
The Brass band were awesome. Lots of crown interaction....and if I would have knowne any of the words I would have joined in for the sing song.
A lovely 'free' morning, something that a lot of tourists seldom experience when visiting a city.
Lunch at L'anders Cafe. we sat there with friends, saw everything, enjoyed the scent of the flowers and had amazing service and some great food at a good price.
