Floriade

April-October, every 10 years (2002, 2012, 2022,...)
Once every 10 years, the Netherlands organizes a World Horticultural Exhibition called the Floriade. The grounds for the 1992 exhibition were the Zoeteneer, outside Amsterdam. They cover 230 acres with lakes, gardens, theme pavilions, restaurants, and environmental displays—including a miniature Netherlands with dykes and canals that visitors can flood and drain at will.
What has been billed as the greatest flower show on earth runs from early April through early October and attracts about three million visitors. Magnificent displays of bulbs and flowers, plants and trees, and fruits and vegetables are divided into seven thematic areas: transport, production, consumer, environment, future, world, and recreation. In addition to the many open-air activities, there are extensive indoor attractions in the numerous halls, greenhouses, and pavilions.
The 2002 Floriade was held in the park in the city of Haarlemmermeer. A unique feature of this event was the milling about of 25 CyberCabs—new, automatically propelled vehicles resembling golf carts—which drove visitors to the top of a hill in the park to enjoy spectacular views of the festival.
