30th Annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

Last weekend we and our friends Arielle and Matt went up to Skagit Valley for the 30th Annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Its about an hour north of Seattle. There are fields upon fields of daffodils and tulips of all colors and varieties. A beautiful sight to see. Its a bit what I picture the Netherlands being like.

There are several agritourism farms that I suppose exist solely to capitalize on the bustling tourism during this one month of the year.

We also perused through a street/craft fair that goes along with the festival and got a funnel cake.

Here are the pictures of the tulips.

It was a little windy.

Tulips unfortunately don't smell that good, but they sure are pretty. Especially these!
