Construction days Flower parade

The build-up days are meant for young & old. Have you always wanted to see how a corsow truck is made? Then the assembly days are a must. The corsow trailers are supplied in large halls in three days by hundreds of volunteers with fragrant and colourful spring flowers such as hyacinths, daffodils and tulips and many other bulbous flowers. The flowers are attached to the design of the trolley in a special way; we call this ‘stitches‘. If you are lucky, maybe you can try it yourself. How nice it is then when you see ‘your’ own work pass by during the corsow weekend.

Opening hours to the public

The build-up days are in 2021 on Wednesday 14, Thursday 15 or Friday 16 April 2021 at DeLeeuw Flowerbulbs in Sassenheim. This flower bulb company has been hosting the assembly days for many years.
