Tulip Festival

    Prev Next

    A big thank you everyone! :)

    For Mother's Day I went to the tulip festival in Ottawa.

    • Ottawa's tulip tradition started after the Second World War. The Dutch government and royal family donated over 100,000 tulip bulbs to Canada as a "thank you" for the generosity and help of Canadians during the war. Each year, the Dutch royal family still sends 20,000 bulbs to Canada.
