LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO THIS WEEKEND?
Then you might want to check out this Tulip Festival near Portland, Oregon. It's a beautiful way to spend a day but plan a few hours.
Because there are Wine Tours and Beer Breaker Tours. Here's the information about those events:
Red Wine Tour Dates- Select April 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, or 30 as the date below at 4pm
Bale Breaker Beer Tour- Select April 14, 21, or 28 as the date below at 5pm
48 hours notice required and ages 21+ only.
Tickets must be purchased on-line - no sales at the field.
You can watch artisans create wooden shoes. They carve them out of chunks of wood, as you watch.
You can also purchase hand-crafted creations, like custom-made gauntlets that are hand-crafted from leather: NomadLeather@hotmail.com with creations by Leather Designer: Damon.
Or, if you prefer, how about a witch broom, or a kitchen sweeper?
Plus, I found some wonderful hand-made, sustainable, fingerless gloves made from old sweaters that were just beautiful.
You can purchase food and drinks
, on-site. Plus, there are activities for the kids, like a giant slide and rubber duck races.
But, if you're looking for quiet beauty and, you simply prefer a quiet walk through the fields, that's always an option. Plus, there are benches placed around the site, so if you get a little tired, you can always pause and sit for a spell. And, it is the perfect opportunity to take a photo or two.
We bought a cup of coffee and sat quietly for a few minutes to take in all the beauty surrounding us.
These blooms are called "First Love" and perhaps they can encourage us to find that one true love or maybe renew an old one.
But, you'll want to hurry because the festival ends on May 7th.
Here is a short little clip, if you want to check it out: Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival outside of Woodburn, Oregon.
