An annual festival of flowers, Floriade features tulips as the main attraction. Numerous displays showcase other colorful flowers from around the world. Sculptures, garden stalls, makeshift restaurants, and live music by local performers make this event a popular stop for locals and tourists. Offering a chance for family photos, the festival also hosts a competition where children and their parents paint gnomes or make scarecrows, with the best entry winning a prize.
