Hello Everyone! How is your weekend going so far? Today, I would like to present you a very casual and chic outfit which is great for travelling with a kid . Yesterday, we spent a lovely day on Ottawa Tulip Festival. The celebration founded on international friendship with the 1945 presentation of 100,000 tulip bulbs from Princess Juliana of the Netherlands to Ottawa, Canada’s capital, given in appreciation of the safe haven that members of Holland’s exiled royal family received during World War II in Ottawa and in recognition of the role which Canadian troops played in the liberation of the Netherlands.

The Canadian Tulip Festival is also a celebration of the return of spring, with over a million tulips in 50 varieties blooming in public spaces across the National Capital Region.

The largest concentration of tulip blooms is in Commissioner’s Park beside Dow’s Lake, with more displays along the Tulip Route on Queen Elizabeth Drive and Parliament Hill as well as in Major’s Hill Park behind the Chateau Laurier Hotel beside Parliament Hill, and in Jacques Cartier Park across the Outaouais River in Gatineau.

The colours and varieties of tulips are stunning. The NCC plants close to 100 different types of tulips in some 30 different locations and 100 flower beds. The tulip season is extended by using early, mid-season and late blooming tulips. You can check the Google Map below to help you identify the many locations of the tulip beds, and use the Tulip Meter to time your visit.
