Top Events For Kids At Tulip Time 2012
Our warm spring has lead to early tulips, but it’s nothing the experts in Holland can’t handle. Tulips will be blooming, but that’s just one of many reasons to visit. Prepare to bring the whole family to Holland, May 5 – May 12.
It’s not difficult to find something for everyone to enjoy at Tulip Time. The whole festival is family friendly, but there are a few events geared more towards kids. We’ve highlighted some of those to help you make plans for Tulip Time.
