It's Tulip Time in Holland!

Head to the West Michigan city to see millions of tulips during the Holland Tulip Fest, which starts Saturday May 6, and runs for two weeks.

Tulip Time events start before the official festival begins. The Holland Tulip Fest is May 6-14, but there is a Dutch Dance and Kinder Dutch Dance on May 4 and 5, along with a carnival on the 5th.

What events are planned?

The Tulip Time Run is back in person this year. It's the first official event of the festival, and will be held from 8 a.m. until noon May 6 at Kollen Park.

Other events include a carnival, parades, walking tours, tours of the Tall Ship Dockside, an artisan market, an art exhibit, photo walks, a quilt show, the Zeeland Girl Exhibit, and more.

The Tulip Immersion Garden is also bigger and better this year. Find it at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds. 

There are also concerts planned, as well as a play, Nana's Naughty Knickers, which you can catch at the Holland Community Center. Tickets at $23 per person. Get them here.
