Flower parades are popular in the Netherlands. Many districts have a parade somewhere in the year, but the parade of all parades is definately the one of the flowerdistrict between Leiden and Haarlem ("Bloemencorso van de bollenstreek" always the last weekend in April). Probably next is the one of Aalsmeer, which is going from Aalsmeer surroundings North-East towards Amsterdam and is very popular among tourists too. this parade is always held in the first weekend of September. In the parade dozens of dressed up cars are a very happy and funny sight for eyes.
