Annually the Flower parade of the 'Bollenstreek' rides its 40 km long route from Noordwijk to Haarlem. It departs from Noordwijk at 9.30am - arrives in Haarlem around 9pm.
The parade consists of some twenty floats and more than thirty wagons richly decorated with flowers, preceded by a festive promotional caravan. Of course this is all accompanied by marching bands. Along the route there is plenty of room for the hundreds of thousands of visitors.
