Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

My family headed out to Skagit Valley to check out the Tulip Festival yesterday. It's been years since I've went out to see the tulips, and they were gorgeous!

Some cool pterodactyl kites greet you as you enter Tulip Town! 

There is an indoor area where you can check out the different types of tulips and purchase them too. There's also a little cafe that has snacks, coffee and giant cones of ice cream! 

These dark purple/black tulips are called Black Diamond. It's quite striking!

It's near the end of the tulip blooming season so most of the fields were empty, but there were still a small patch of the field that were covered in tulips in all colours. The pink ones are my favourite.

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is happening until the end of April; admission is $6 per person. Make a day trip out of it and enjoy the flowers!
