Flower Corso

The Westland is an area north-west of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. It is the Dutch main producer of flowers, fruits and vegetables. Most of it is covered with greenhouses and endless rows of terraced houses. Environmentally, it is probably one of the most destroyed areas in Europe, but on the other hand they produce highly efficient with a minimum use of land and resources. Once a year they try to improve their image with a flower corso of several days. More than 40 boats are decorated with their local products. Mostly their topics follow contemporary media favorites, but sometimes they also refer to environmental or political issues. This year, for three days the boats drifted through the canals for 7-8 hours a day, quite a challenge in the heat of the hottest June weekend ever.
