For more than 85 years, the Holland Village, Michigan has held the Tulip Time Festival. The festival attracts guests from all parts of the world for fun and flowers. Dutch settlers brought with them the tulips from Holland and this is why the Village is called Holland. The Tulip festival came into existence after a biology teacher suggested a day to be set aside for the festival at a woman’s Literary Club Meeting. The idea caught on and the city started selling tulip bulbs the residents in 1928 and finally, in 1929 the Tulip Time Event was formed.
