Tulip Time in Siouxland, Orange City

26 Jun

 

Even though it is now summer, Orange City, Iowa held its annual Tulip Festival in May and as always, a parade, food, costumes, and many people attending over the three-day event. This year I went the second day of the festival which had a fewer people on a Friday which was nice, and also because I had a class I was teaching Saturday. It was a little different in that the sidewalks were not quite as jammed with visitors. But the pomp and circumstance and hoopla surrounding the community’s celebration was still palpable.
