  1. I am coming the weekend after this and wondering if what they do with the floats after Sunday? Can we still see them?

    • Hi Skye,

      Usually by the end of the day on Sunday the floats already look pretty tired, the flowers are fading fast. So my guess is that they go back to Sassenheim for deconstruction. They are unfortunatelly not available for the public after Sunday.
