September 3rd, Zundert. On the first Sunday of September every year since 1936, Zundert, a small town in the Netherlands that is the birthplace of Vincent van Gogh, puts on the world’s largest volunteer-run flower parade, with a raft of over-the-top floats made from local dahlias. Thousands of flowers adorned the streets of this tiny Dutch town at the weekend, taking on the form of mystical creatures and tussling animals. Teams of volunteers were competing for the best-designed flower float in this year's competition, which saw thousands of dahlias in incredible shapes on 20 floats. This year the neighborhood "Schijf" won the competition with an amazing creation.
