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.

The municipality of Zundert is taking extra measures to protect its flower parade this year, including placing concrete blocks on access roads. The flower parade is taking place this weekend, Omroep Brabant reports.

"Maybe a hundred thousand people from home and abroad are coming to watch the flower parade this weekend", a spokesperson for the municipality said to the broadcaster. "At such a big event, it is important that you as municipality look at safety." According to the spokesperson, a number of visible and invisible measures are being taken.
