The bulb-growing area is a unique part of the Netherlands. This district is situated in the urban agglomeration of Western Holland, between the cities of Haarlem and Leiden, only 20 km. from Amsterdam. Characteristic of this area are the beautiful North Sea beaches and its hinterland filled with historical bulb-growing cultivation. This hinterland in particular is what makes the bulb-growing area so special. The explosion of colors of tulips, narcissuses and hyacinths during springtime attracts millions of visitors from both home and abroad.
All these spectacular flowers, the tulips, hyacinths and daffodils are processed for decoration in floats and luxury cars and will pass through the bulb-growing area for the 70th time on the 22th of April, showing the Dutch flower-bulb cultivation in all its glory. On April 23th all floats can be admired at the market square in Haarlem.
