Springtime Festivals in the U.S.
Now that spring is in full bloom it’s time to take advantage of what it has to offer. Flower festivals are a great way to enjoy nature and participate in social activities with the community. Many people travel from faraway places to see the beauty of the grand floral affair. Almost every state has their own flower festival, but there are a few in the country that really stand out. Just think of acres and acres of tulips and you will think you’ve died and gone to heaven.
It’s only fitting that you have a flower festival in Holland, Michigan. Paying homage to the Dutch heritage in this small town they started planting thousands of tulips since 1929. Locals will dress in Dutch costumes and perform a traditional folk dance from the Netherlands. You will feel like you left the country and traveled to the 19th century Netherlands with traditional food, crafts, and shopping. It’ll convince you to want to come celebrate every year.
