Tulips in Pella IA

April 19, 2010

Tulip Time is 3 weeks away but the tulips were absolutely gorgeous in Pella, Iowa, this last weekend. I got some beautiful photographs. We enjoyed dutch letter pastries and frosted sugar cookies from Jaarsma Bakery. We walked all around town to admire the tulips, other spring flowers and flowering trees.

Tulip Time is a great family outing as a day trip! You might have trouble finding a hotel room by now if you don’t have one already, but maybe some are still available. It is a very popular festival. Over 60,000 dutch letters are sold over the 3 days. This year it’s May 6, 7, & 8, 2010.

I’ll add my favorite photos as the week goes by….

The old high school building was my first photo op.

Tulip Time is this weekend (May 7-9, 2009) in Pella, IA. It is like being in Holland only you are in the middle of Iowa! It is a lot of fun. Check out the big Vermeer windmill and the Wyatt Earp house, as well as many other places. Taste the yummy dutch letters at Jaarsma or Vander Ploeg bakeries.
