The annual flower parade in Zundert attracted 70 thousand visitors on Sunday - a new record, according to the organizers. "Until the last moment on Sunday, many people still bought tickets", a spokesperson said to ANP.

The parade involved around 20 floats - one from every Zundert neighborhood - covered in dahlias. Each float counted at least 400 thousand flowers. Hundreds of volunteers helped construct the floats over the past weeks.

A float featuring an iguana was named the winner this year, second place went to Plague Doctor and third to Out of Space.

Some 50 flower parade builders from Zundert gathered on the Museumplein in Amsterdam on Tuesday to build a self-portrait of Vincent van Gogh in dahlias. This 8 by 8 meter flower portrait is to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Zundert-born artist's death on Wednesday.
