Its a really popular family event, especially with kids, notes Tulip Times Lib Ilderton. Little girls dress up as fairies with wings, and the little boys are elves. We have a tulip fairy who christens the kids with fairy dust its a whole routine. And its so pretty, because we have so many tulips in bloom, and about that time, theyre basically at their peak.
Gather on the 1100 block of Pearl Street in Boulder today at 2 p.m. to watch (or participate in) the march down to the St. Julien Hotel, where a parade reception will be held with a gazebo, treats, a live band playing kid-friendly music, and, of course, more stunning tulips among which attendees can frolic. Its a great people-watching event, adds Ilderton, so dont forget to add a pinch of magic in the form of a costume. The parade and reception are free; visit www.boulderdowntown.com/events/go/2472 for information.
