Month-long tulip festival began in Washington
April 04, 2011
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is underway in Mount Vernon, Washington. The festival lasts throughout the month of April and will feature more than 40 family-focused events scheduled, according to the Herald Net.
The 28th year is packed with activities that include a tulip parade in the morning of April 9. There will also be a tulip run on that day, which will consist of a two- or five-mile scenic race around the Skagit River and Swinomish Channel. In addition, there is a daily tour of the 15-square mile triangle fields of tulips, daffodils and other
that started April 1st. Children will also have the opportunity to pet alpacas at a local farm.
The executive director of the festival, Cindy Verge, explained to the news source that the tulips will not bloom fully until later this week, so the event-goers who are attending this weekend should know that there are rows and rows of daffodils to view.
The season of tulips is also showcased in an event in Memphis, Tennessee. The week-long show, which is open to the public at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, displays different hybrids of tulips in full bloom, according to the Commercial Appeal.
