In mid-April, a group of us went to Lisse to see the flower parade (or Bloemencorso). The parade goes through
about 9 towns in the area and covers about 40 kilometers. Starting in Noordwijk and finishing in Haarlem. With the way the tulips were now blooming, it looked like a great time for this
kind of parade. And, it was. We went by, but did not stop at the famous Keukenhof Gardens. By the number of buses
and cars there, you could see that it was a popular spot.
Lisse itself is a beautiful village. We found our way to the centrum and then followed the crowds to the annual parade
route. Each year, the flower floats have a particular theme. This year, the theme seemed to be places and cultures from all over
