While the United States was celebrating Labor Day Weekend, one Dutch town was in full bloom. The annual parade Corso Zundert features the most intricate floats, completely covered in flowers.

Started in 1936, Corso Zundert celebrates the Netherlands' iconic blooming exports. Each year, teams of volunteers from each hamlet travel to the small town of Zundert and compete to build the most impressive float made of dahlias. Many of the floats also incorporate moving parts and marching bands, too.

This year's winner was this giant dragon, titled "Dangerous Transportation," created by the hamlet of Tigelaar.
