Tulip Time :: Holland Michigan
May 4, 2006
Tulip Time is coming! Holland, Michigan may not have fields as big as those in the region it is named for, but they do have windmills and wooden shoes.
Tulips are neat because there are pink tulips and white tulips and tulips that aren't sure what color they are. You can find tulips that are elegant in their simplicity, tulips that are extravagant and wild and tulips on fire. You can watch people on parade or tulips on parade.
The Archives of Michigan have a great photo from Tulip Time in 1931 and say that on April 26, 1927, Lida Rogers spoke before the Woman's Literary Club of Holland suggested planting tulips in every yard to enhance the beauty of Holland. Today, Tulip Time is one of the 5 largest festivals in the United States!
