VA – The beginning of April marks the kick-off of the second annual Festival of
Tulips at Burnside Farms in Haymarket, VA.
The mother and son team of farm owners, Leslie and Michael Dawley,
worked tirelessly through the winter planting 90,000 tulip bulbs in more than
50 different varieties. Their field will
soon come alive with a variety of vibrant colors and blossoms that proclaim
March/Early April when the flowers are in bloom, local residents and tourists
alike will be able to stroll through the fields during the three-week Festival
of Tulips and pick their own blooms. “Once
our tulip field is in bloom, it’s truly a sight to behold,” said Michael
Dawley. “Tulips come in so many sizes,
shapes and colors and to see them all together truly is an indescribable
experience. The Festival of Tulips, offers
everyone the chance to take some of that beauty home with them.”
The tulip field
is an amazing location for spring photos or a peaceful picnic lunch. Families, schools or groups of all sizes are invited
to visit the farm for their first outing of spring. The entry fee for the Festival of Tulips is
$3 per person and tulips cost just $1 per stem.
Festival timing is dependent on mother nature, it is not possible to
give the exact opening date at this time. Typical timing is late March/Early
April. Visit facebook.com/burnsidefarms
