Step into the Spotlight: Adopt-a-Float and Embrace the Flower Parade Bloemencorso Tradition
Since its inception in 1947, the Flower Parade Bollenstreek, also known as Bloemencorso in Dutch, has been synonymous with the arrival of spring, enchanting spectators with new and captivating displays each year. For the first time, the parade is offering a groundbreaking opportunity for passionate fans to make history by adopting a piece of their very own float. This unique Adopt-a-Float initiative allows enthusiasts to immerse themselves in the heart of the flower parade tradition, fostering a sense of ownership and pride. Flower Parade fun fact: since 2021 the flower parade is part of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage tradition.
Imagine the thrill of pointing to a dazzling float and exclaiming, “That’s our car!” This dream can now become a reality for every true parade fan. By participating in the Adopt-a-Float campaign, supporters can collaborate with fellow enthusiasts to build a genuine parade fan float, one that will stand as the shining centerpiece of the colorful spring festival on Saturday, April 20, 2024.
Adopting a piece of float is not just an investment in the parade; it’s a celebration of the vibrant corsotradition. Whether you are a long-time admirer or a newcomer, this initiative allows you to play an active role in the preservation of a cherished cultural heritage. Bloemencorso Bollenstreek welcomes and appreciates every contribution, emphasizing the collective effort required to maintain the beauty and magic of the parade tradition.
