Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

There is a tupil festival up here in Washington. It last the whole month of April. We have been so busy this month and with all the cold weather the tulips were late in blooming! Today was our first chance to get up to Mount Vernon to see them all in Bloom.

We first drove out to "Tulip Town" - International Peace Gardens - There you could choose to walk the fields or ride in a trolley. We chose to walk. If you were in the trolley you could not get down and see the Tulips close up. We walked about 1/2 acres worth of fields. (It was really muddy today).

Check out the photos below.

After we finished looking at the beautiful tulips we drove to downtown Mount Vernon. There was a street fair going on, with plenty of arts & crafts booths and a ton of food. Ashley & I had corndogs and fries Shiloh & Bill had Brustworths (Polish dogs) and they helped us girls eat our fries. Shiloh and Ashley also enjoyed a Shiskaberry. (This is Strawberries dipped in white chocolate and milk chocolate, then put on a spear like shiskabobs).

We enjoyed walking around and looking at the local art offered at the fair. We also listened to street music. (Wonderful pan flute)
