Pella urging visitors to come early to enjoy tulips

Pella — As first reported in the Pella Chronicle and Journal-Express, the world-famous Pella tulips are blooming early this year and may not last until the May 3-5 Tulip Time. The Pella Convention and Visitors Bureau is suggesting to those interested in the flowers to come soon. 


"If tulips are your main interest, a visit to Pella should be planned within the next few weeks. As you may have guessed, the spring warmth has persuaded the colors to arrive early this year. If your camera has been anxiously waiting for Pella tulip photo opts, early April is the time to pack that camera and journey to Pella," a Pella CVB press release reads.

"This year, one Pella visit just won’t be enough. Pella will “celebrate the blooming of the tulips” within the next few weeks and then “celebrate our Heritage” during the 77th Annual Tulip Festival May 3-5. The festival offers performances, parades, Dutch foods, Dutch dancers, Dutch costumes and so much more," the release concludes.
