This year the Corso Zundert parade in Zundert, Netherlands was inspired by Van Gogh paintings. The floats read as giant 3D interpretations of his artwork and the pieces borrow specific imagery as well as riffing on Van Gogh’s style. This year in Zundert—where Van Gogh was born 162 years ago—19 teams of people created floats for the celebration. The moving sculptures are elaborate mosaics, made entirely of different colors of dahlias.

Today, if you are up early enough and like to watch parades, contemporary art's very own Takashi Murakami will have a major role in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Macy's themselves have been trying to have Murakami's Kaikai and Kiki characters in the form of inflatable balloons over the streets of Manhattan for years, and we are happy for the determination to get the Japanese artist to commit. More pictures, courtesy of the NY Times, after the jump . . .
