Tulips may already be in bloom at Dow’s Lake, but the Canadian Tulip Festival isn’t happening for almost two weeks.
Like last year, the festival will be completely online, and doesn’t officially kick off until May 14. The 69th edition of the festival is slated to wrap up on May 24.
“The safest way to enjoy the tulips this year is online,” the festival’s executive director, Jo Riding, said in a statement. “With the information provided by Ottawa Public Health, we knew to prepare for a third variant-based wave this spring and have done everything we can to bring the tulips to Ottawa, Canada, and the World.”
