Organic Tulip Festival Blooms Just in Time for Spring

Posted: Updated: March 30, 2013 11:13 PM

This year's Organic Tulip Festival sprang into action Saturday - just as the spring weather is picking up.

The new location in Aroda - which was covered with snow just a few days ago - blossomed for their first batch of visitors Saturday. Hundreds came out to enjoy a full line-up of activities including an Easter egg hunt, hay rides, a puppet show, and of course - tulips.

"The best part is the happy faces I see," said Jeroen Koeman, EcoTulips co-founder. "Of all the people, the kids, and it's very nice that we see people of all groups like people from the city, local people - they are enjoying the easy entertainment over here. Just farm, and we have tulips and a good atmosphere and that's all you need."

The festival is in its fourth year. It is slated to last four weeks.

Organizers say peak bloom will be in mid-April.
