Tulip Time 2023

Kim Vandermolen, who is in charge of volunteers for Tulip Time, gave us an update on what is in store for this year. Highlights are:
  • The Tulip Immersion garden will be back but on the grounds of Beechwood church.
  • The Artisan Market and Fair will have more than 300 vendors this year. It will move to the fairgrounds allowing for more parking and better traffic flow.
  • The Crescendo Bicycle Band from the Netherlands will be around for the festival. They perform while riding in formation. The video was amazing.
  • The usual mix of local and national musical performances.
  • Kinderparade and the Musikparade will be on Thursday and Saturday.
  • Fireworks will culminate the festival on the last Saturday.
Rotary has provided Grandstand Greeters for parades for a number of years. Greeters are needed starting at noon each parade day and will need to be around for 3. hours. The only grandstands will be on 8th Street by the Civic Center. There will also be seats next to the grandstands for people with mobility difficulties.
The special signup link for Rotarians and friends is Rotary Volunteer Signup.
