Van Gogh on parade

The folks in Zundert, Netherlands are crazy about flowers, Vincent Van Gogh and parades. On the first Sunday of every September they put on a wildly colorful festival to celebrate all three.

The event honors the region’s horticultural industry, which specializes in dahlia bulbs. It also is a celebration of Van Gogh, who was born in the southern Dutch town 162 years ago.
