Orange City’s Tulip Festival

Submitted by on February 12, 2011 – 2:55 pm2 Comments

The rich Dutch heritage of Orange City, Iowa, will be on display during the 70th annual Tulip Festival, set for May 19-21, 2011. What we’re most interested in, Road Trips Gardeners, is the tulips. And there’ll be thousands of ’em lining the streets and filling gardens and flower pots. Don’t miss the tulip beds in downtown’s Windmill Park and in the Tulip Town Bulb Company Gardens.

There’s lots more, of course, including the traditional street-washing, parades, street fest, quilt show and both 10K and 5K runs.

To learn more about Orange City, go online. (You do know that orange is the color of royalty in the Netherlands, don’t you?)

    If this is going to Judy Thompson, I was wondering if you remember me from the old road racing days.

    I did not realize you are an artist. I love the poster. Write back if you can.
