|Tulip festival showcases Michigan Dutch communityWMU international students with festival dancers
The explosion of beauty that makes Holland, Michigan's Tulip Time one of the largest flower festivals in the United States was enjoyed by 21 WMU international students on Saturday, May 11, 2013.
The annual festival is a day trip offered by WMU's International Student Activities Office to introduce students to Michigan's Dutch community and to see the hundreds of thousands of tulips growing in Holland, with a history extending back to 1929.
A highlight of the day was viewing the festival parade and watching presentations of traditional Dutch dancing in wooden shoes. The students also enjoyed shopping in the Dutch village and in Downtown Holland.
