|We took a drive south of Amsterdam, near Lisse, to see the Flower Parade. This is an annual parade in the Netherlands so we thought we'd try to catch it.
The theme this year was Musical Parade 2011. Surprisingly almost all the floats featured musicals well-known in the USA.
We watched amidst the multilingual crowd, smiling in agreement to Dutch conversation and marveling at the elaborate work involved in creating these impressive floats.
We have posted a few pictures and video snippets of some of these.
