It’s OK to stop and smell the flowers, say tulip festival organizers

While last year’s Canadian Tulip Festival encouraged Ottawans to admire the flowers virtually, people can enjoy them online or in-person in 2021 — as long as they use common sense.

“This is our second virtual year,” said Jo Riding, executive director of the festival. “But the big difference is, instead of two months to plan, we’ve had a whole year.”

The tulip festival — which celebrates Canada’s role in the Second World War and the liberation of the Netherlands — runs from May 14 to May 24, although an early spring means some tulips are blooming already.
