iStock_000006137356XSmall.jpgThere are a variety of tulip festivals throughout North America, typically found in cities rooted in Dutch heritage. Not just for flower lovers, tulip festivals are a popular spring day outing that offers a variety of activities beyond just a beautiful view for the whole family to enjoy. Most festivals take you beyond the tulip and offer fun gardening information, local inspired food for tasting, vibrant parades for watching and live music from a local band for listening.

You can expect that some of the host gardens will display rows of pristinely planted tulips in perfectly aligned colors, while others will have tulips wildly scattered about. But no matter the arrangement, planted, potted or fresh cut, the delicate tulip sure does pack a powerful punch of memorable color.

Go on, tip toe through the tulips this spring season at one of these popular tulip festivals.
