THIS WEEKEND AT THE TULIP FESTIVAL, MORGES
The impressive annual Tulip Festival takes place every Spring on the lakeside Parc de l’Indépendence in Morges. This year’s event takes place from 31st March – 6th May 2018 and the first varieties will bloom in mid-April. The free festival lasts five weeks and presents more than 120,000 tulips of 300 different varieties, showing off the flower’s huge range of shapes and colours. The bulbs are sold off at the end of the festival and you can pre-order them on-site to collect on the 9th May 2018.
On the program this coming weekend:
