The Bosch Parade is an annual celebration in the Netherlands in which creative artistic exhibits float by, sometimes including swimmers and acrobats and welders and singers and water sprayers.[1] Floats are designed by professional artists and designers who collaborate with choreographers and composers and directors, and the final production requires many volunteers.[2] The event is usually held during a few days each June.[2] The artistic director is Miesjel van Gerwen. The celebration was named in honour of the 15th century Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch.[2] Guidelines include only minimal use of power or motors.[2] It attracts thousands of visitors who watch from the banks of the river.[3]
