The Tulip Festival begins today in Holland Michigan, May 1 through the 8th. The festival website says, "it is a celebration of Dutch heritage and culture, a multi-generational event that has a little bit of something for everyone including; 3 amazing parades, multiple Dutch Dance performances, concerts, theatre, Dutch attractions, Dutch food, children’s events, trolley tours and so much more!" There are many interesting places about Dutch traditions in Holland that you can visit any time of the year but festival time is special.
Visitors to the festival often stop by our farm shop on the way since we are only 25 miles from Holland to the south and east which makes it a fun week for us as well. We had a good rain, actually thunderstorm, during the night so everything is fresh and dewy looking and now the sun will come out to make the day more enjoyable. Guess I should get shining as well.
