Tuliptime Opening

Vitaliy Grytsyk of Detroit takes photos of his wife, Anna, and daughter, Chaya, 5, next to a field of tulips at the Windmill Island Gardens in Holland on April 27.

Despite concerns that the COVID-19 pandemic and a pared-down schedule of events would keep people from coming to Holland to see the tulips this year, Holland’s hotel rooms sold out the first weekend of Tulip Time and visitors flocked to the city.

“I was totally thrilled with the number of people who were here in town taking in all of the Tulip Time activities, and honestly floored that there were so many people in town,” said Gwen Auwerda, Tulip Time’s executive director. “It was beyond my expectations. Every single one of our events was sold out Saturday and Sunday.”
