A few pictures from August this year, when there there were celebrations in my hometown. We have a parade with all kinds of big and small vehicles made of flowers, and these two pictures are details from one of the larger ones. Bright light as you can see, but nonetheless i think they show how the front of the wagon looks 🙂

The Bull of Flowers

This creation is mostly made out of Dahlia flowers. Every year at the last weekend of August there is a big celebration called Volksfeest (people’s party). One of the main components is the flower parade. The contestants make beautiful creations and stick all kinds of colored dahlia’s on the wagons to try and impress the jury. I liked this wagon the best from this years parade. In the final score it ended second in line. Pretty good result, but the fun afterwards is just as important to the locals here 😉
