Community Planting Day | Saturday, Oct 13 2018

8:00am – 12:00pm

A great way to get involved with the the City of Holland Parks Department plant 75,000 tulip bulbs at Window on the Waterfront!

Volunteers are needed for two shifts 8a -10a and 10a -12p. Go to to sign up for your shift.  Refreshments will be provided by Bowerman’s Blueberries and Biggby Coffee. Dress for the weather, bring your green thumbs and gardening gloves. The City of Holland Parks Department will supply the bulbs, necessary tools for planting and plenty of instruction. (Rain date will be October 20, 2018, same time and place.) 

This year, we are featuring four beds just for kids! Over 1,000 multi-colored bulbs will be provided for kids to plant in the children’s tulip gardens while supplies last. Kids can then sign their name on a banner that will be prominently displayed at these beds during Tulip Time. (Children need not register to participate.)

Announcing the "Official Bloom of Tulip Time"
2019 is the Festival’s 90th Anniversary celebration. Since orange is the color of the Dutch Royal Family which hails from the House of Orange, we are asking everyone to Join the Dance as we paint the town orange! A brilliant orange tulip variety has been selected as the official bloom of Tulip Time for 2019. These bulbs will be available for sale at this event. Take some home to plant and paint your own garden orange!
