Niacet Tiel Sponsors Annual Fruit Corso – September 16, 2014
For more than 50 years, the City of Tiel has been host to the annual Fruit Corso – a regional festival featuring the best in animation and creativity in parade floats and mosaics decorated entirely with fresh fruits and vegetables – apples, pears, raspberries, grapes, plums, nuts, seeds, peppers, onions, and other harvest items from the local fruit belt of the Netherlands.
The colorful and whimsical floats are often a year in the making, comprising a sub-structure and mechanized carriage to support the larger-than-life displays, each with a minimum length of 14 meters.
Events also include creation of fruit mosaics – displayed in the City Center and created by the local school children and other civic groups.
Niacet proudly supports the Fruit Corso – a listed Cultural Heritage event of the Netherlands.
