As if that wasn’t enough, know that the festival will also have everything from photo ops (swings, platforms… even a convertible from the 50s) as well as lawn games to enjoy. If you’re feeling peckish, then you grab buy some refreshments or see which food trucks are on-site that day.

Then, before you leave, make sure to check out the Flower Shop. In addition to fresh tulips available for purchase, you’ll also be able to buy some souvenirs, seeds, and a frozen treat for your drive own.
