It is the Tulip Time Festival in our beautiful city of Holland, Michigan this week. I took some time Thursday morning to play tourist in my own town. Here are some of the things I found...
Find No. 1
I found tulips. Which you wouldn't think would be that amazing since it is the Tulip Time Festival, but after the long, cold Winter and Spring we have had the tulips are well behind their normal blooming time. They are probably at 30% of their blooming potential right now. Last year at this time they were are 95%. Two years ago when we had the really warm Spring it was the Stem Festival. Every year is a crap shoot.
Find No. 2
A handful of years ago they started bringing in carnival rides for the festival to help make it attractive to all ages. I love the colors in all these great carnival rides. I couldn't resist a little vintage processing on this one.
Find No. 3
I found empty red chairs lined up along the road waiting for the parade. Somebody got up at the crack of dawn to put these out.
I found lots of empty bleachers waiting be filled with tourists this afternoon.
Find No. 4
I found a Carmel Corn wagon. Thankfully it was closed since this is my one junk food weakness.
I found this junk food wagon near the bleachers. Lots of selections here. Again I couldn't resist the vintage processing.
Find No. 5
I found one of the Tulip Time Trolleys.
While photographing the Trolley, I couldn't resist a couple shots of my favorite doors in the whole city of Holland. I find it interesting how somebody decided to do some math on one of the doors.
