Tip-Toe through our Tulips!!!

Tulip Time is here!

(Again)... May 3-10, 2008

tours. traffic. tourists. flowers. parades.

If you are from Holland, MI, you are probably dreading the 3rd largest flower festival and activities. The town shuts down from most 'normal' events, and puts it's efforts towards entertaining the tourists. 3 parades, hundreds of vendors, and the area tv stations finally acknowledge our little settlement. Our windmill is remembered, and tulips pop up EVERYWHERE, residents realize the history behind the festival. Come visit sometime, if you would like to make this small town a bit more crowded, and see the Dutch re-enact their heritage and rituals.
