Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Monday, 29 June 2020 is Bloemencorso.
Bloemencorso (a Dutch word) means "flower parade", "flower pageant" or "flower procession". In a parade of this kind the floats (praalwagens), cars and (in some cases) boats are magnificently decorated or covered in flowers. This custom goes back as far as the middle ages. Each parade has its own character, charm and theme. Many towns and regions in the Netherlands and Belgium hold parades every year.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:00 UTC on Monday, 29 June 2020.
For the full current version of the article, see Bloemencorso on Wikipedia.
