Will you be one of the hundreds of thousands of people will visit the Skagit Valley this April for Skagit Valley Tulip Festival 2014? We hope so – as one of Washington State’s most popular destination events, and a much-loved month for getaway vacations to La Conner, you’ll be treated to acres and acres of brightly colored tulips, display gardens that are simply stunning, and photo opportunities around every corner including the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Parade 2014!
One of the reasons so many people love La Conner during Tulip Festival is that we have events like the annual Not-So-Impromptu Tulip Parade and Frolic! You’ll see the wacky side of La Conner – the funny and whimsical side of folks who live here, visit here, and just plain want a place to have a whole bunch of fun celebrating all things Tulip and all things Spring. Plus our very own Marci Plank will be the 2014 Grand Marshall!
Saturday April 12th – The festivities start at 10am with the Tulip Frolic sponsored by Country Financial, Gilkey Square will be filled with activities & entertainment for young and old. The 29th Annual Kiwanis Not-So-Impromptu parade presented by US Bank starts at 2pm and runs along Morris and First Streets. All entries are welcome to participate in the parade and it is FREE! This is an absolute hoot of a parade – bring your lawn chairs (and maybe a jacket if it’s chilly outside) and join in our hilarity of farm animals, clowns, bands, mascots and your favorite pets.
