Every year during the first full week of May, Tulip Time is held in Holland, Michigan. Mom & Dad came for Grandparent's Day yesterday, so today, we went to Holland with Maria & Bridget to check it out. We took the "Klompen" carriage. When we saw someone taking a picture of Mom & Dad's license plate, it felt like we were the parade marshalls, or something.
The tulips were at their peak!
We walked around and saw the dancers, booths, costumes, singers, etc. Dad said he was a little homesick.
Dad is originally from the Netherlands. The girls are 75% Dutch. Even though Mom is not Dutch, she realized she could pronounce the Dutch words better than the announcer.
The dancers line the streets in downtown Holland. There are over 1000 dancers total and they have been practicing since January!
Some of the dancers posed with Mom & Dad.
We stopped to eat.
And watched more dances.
The tulips were outstanding.
At the end, the girls were tuckered out by Tulip Time
