A huge spring event that has become famous in Europe is coming to an American city

Spring usually brings warmer temperatures and more sunshine, which helps the most beautiful flowers bloom.

For some lucky New Yorkers, the benefits of spring’s arrival will include a free bouquet of flowers in a scene outside of Holland’s famous tulip fields.

The first-ever Tulip Day takes place in New York City in Union Square on April 7.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors will have the opportunity to build their own bouquet of ten tulips from an estimated 200,000 flowers.

Although advance tickets are sold out, there are still a limited number of places available to visit.

It is recommended to arrive early as the event is likely to attract thousands.

The event is held in partnership with the Consulate General of the Netherlands and Royal Anthos, a Dutch flower trade association.

The event’s organizers hope it will become an annual event, as it has done in other cities.

But this year is special because it celebrates 400 years of New York’s Dutch history, and is part of the Future 400 initiative launched by the Dutch Consulate.

The idea of ​​Tulip Day stems from European traditions.

Traders in Europe export tulip bulbs to more than 100 countries around the world, including the United States.

Typically, tulips are planted in the fall and bloom in the spring.

Amsterdam is specifically known for its annual Tulip Festival, which takes place in April.

Visitors flock to see the flowers in full bloom at more than 80 locations around the city.

While the United States does not have a festival dedicated to tulips that is as widely known as Amsterdam’s, some cities have similar traditions.

New Yorkers who frequent Park Avenue know that the famous street is full of beautiful flowers in April and early May.

Then, at the end of tulip season, an annual dig takes place through the Park Avenue malls so residents can take the bulbs home and replant them.

The event – which usually takes place at the end of May – is free to the public.

Tulip Day has previously been held in other American cities.

San Francisco Flower Day was held on March 9, the day after International Women’s Day.

Featuring 80,000 lavender flowers imported from the Netherlands, guests created six-stem bouquets to keep.

The event has been held in the city since 2018, attracting crowds in the thousands.

San Francisco Tulip Day has become such a huge event that organizers have begun including a social media component to attract more interest.

The Show Us Your Tulips’ Journey Home contest encourages those who have secured tulip bouquets to show how they planted bulbs around their property.

The event cost about $100,000 to produce, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, and uses money from a European Union grant.
