Over 5 million reasons to celebrate.
Each May, downtown Holland’s tulips spring up in vibrant beds of every hue — adorning the main 8th street stretch, filling the Windmill Island Gardens and coloring the curbs of our historic homes along the Tulip Lanes. Tulips are our city’s tradition. They’re part of the heritage we love to celebrate.
