The annual Tulip festival team takes place in the Mt. Vernon/La Connor area(located about an hour north of Seattle with no traffic). It is beautiful a great place to go with family and take pictures(I’m a sucker for good photography).
La Connor is a fun little town and there are little shops and restaurants in the downtown area which are fun to look through… In Mt. Vernon(which is a bigger city) has a nice little yarn show called Wild Fibers. I have visited this in the past during the Puget Sound’s yarn crawl.Its a special shop and has some offerings that I don’t see in a lot of the other local yarn shops (which is saying a lot because there are a bunch of them around western Washington)
Okay, so back to the Skagit Tulip Festival, it is a month long festival and there are fields of daffodils and tulips to go see. The daffodils always bloom first and earlier in the month and are randomly planted in fields. They are beautiful it is looking like a sea of yellow, after they finish blooming the tulips come throughout the month. If you like Tulips you will have to do to either Tuliptown or Roozengaarde. These are two places that offer the ability to walk through the tulip fields and take photos and look at the many varieties of tulips.
