HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - The excitement of Tulip Time may be more than six months away, but festival officials are hoping to capture some of this this weekend.
The “Blessing of the Bulbs” activities kick off at 5:30 in the Window on the Waterfront Park off of 6th Street with the announcement of the entertainment acts scheduled to perform during the 85th annual renewal of Holland’s signature event, which runs from May 3rd through 10th. Officials will also announce an initiative aimed at creating awareness of the festival on a year-round basis.
The “Running of the Bulbs” 5K fun run/walk takes place at the park, with participants touring where tulip bulbs will be planted. Registration is 20 dollars to help defray costs of the specialty flowers and other festival activities. The Community Planting Day is on Saturday morning at Window on the Waterfront, with two two-hour shifts beginning at 8 AM.
