Experience Tulips in Midwest – Holland, Michigan
Each May, downtown Holland’s tulips spring up in vibrant beds of every hue — adorning the main 8th street stretch, filling the Windmill Island Gardens and coloring the curbs of our historic homes along the Tulip Lanes. Tulips are our city’s tradition. They’re part of the heritage that they love to celebrate.
For nearly 90 years, millions of people have gathered to participate in Holland’s Tulip Time Festival. Drawing more than 500,000 people annually, Tulip Time offers a nine-day experience of our town and its traditions. With over 5 million tulips blooming throughout the city and hundreds of klompen dancers, Tulip Time has been heralded as the nation’s Best Flower Festival, America’s Best Small Town Festival and even the 2017 – 2018 Tulip Festival of the Year! From Dutch traditional garb and dance to nationally renowned entertainment, Tulip Time celebrates both culture and community. This year, participate in all the festival offers — parades, carnival rides, wooden shoes, elephant ears, fireworks and tulips. We invite you to join as we embrace heritage and our town’s unique dance.
So on May 4 I and my friends decided to experience the Tulip festival for the first time and here is the video.
