Zundert, Netherlands Bloemencorso (Big Ass Flower Parade)

So a bloemencorso is a flower parade, which is basically like the Rose Bowl's sashay around the streets of Pasadena, only it is in a small Dutch town called Zundert and the floats are goddamned insane. These are some pics of past winners.

I am in absolute awe of the top image. I don't have the imagination to draw something like that, let alone sculpt it out of millions of dahlias, and that makes me jealous as well as awed. Jealawed. Don't even try to steal it, it's copyrighted.

I added a video of this year's affair at the bottom of the post, but it is over an hour long and the commentary is Dutch, and it becomes apparent pretty quickly that you're sitting at your computer watching a recorded broadcast of a parade that is being remarked upon by people who aren't speaking English, which is unacceptable, so you don't have to click on it if you don't want to.
