Corso Fleuri

Parade in Sélestat

Sélestat's headline event is a floral affair. Some 500,000 dahlias adorn 12 floats at the two flower parades that weave their way through the old town streets on a Saturday in mid-August – a fixture on the summer calendar since 1929. They are accompanied by musicians, street entertainers and folk groups. Fireworks round things out with a bang.
