The parade floats at the Zundert Flower Parade are designed and built by the twenty hamlets. Everything is done by volunteers, even the cultivation of the dahlias. In order to prepare the floats for the big parade, hundreds of people join together. The art of building the Zundert Parade floats has been passed down from generation to generation.
