A World of Fun at Tulip Time’s Kinderplaats!

 

IMG_5897

This year was my first real chance to experience Tulip Time. As a Hope student, we always seemed to leave before “the big event,” and last year we were too busy planning a wedding to stop and smell the tulips! But this year I was determined to enjoy the week to the fullest.

And boy, did I come to understand what the locals mean when they say the week is crazy! My husband and I were glad we lived within walking distance of everything, since we wouldn’t have been able to park any closer anyway.

I got the chance to volunteer as a photographer at Tulip Time’s Kinderplaats, which is a fun and games time for the littles at Kollen Park. The wind off Lake Macatawa brought shivers, but the smiles on kids faces shone brighter than the sun! It was a blast watching the kids get stickers on their “passports” as they raced from one Netherlands province to another and rode fun rides at the carnival.

Here are a few of the pictures from the day (posted with parental permission, of course!)

I’ve never ridden on a camel before, but it looked like fun!
It was great watching from the sidelines, too 🙂

  1. Hi
    My name is Samantha Moore, and I was wondering if there is any way I can see the picture you took of my Family during kinderplaats. I had not found your site until now…my email was so overstuffed I completely passed by this until now that I’m cleaning it out. If you can help with this request , Thanks.

    Sincerely,
    Samantha Moore
