Tiptoe through the tulips

This weekend is the Mt Vernon Tulip Festival Street Fair. The fields of the Skagit Valley are in full bloom right now -- rows upon rows of fabulous colors, varieties and blooms. If you've never seen it, or haven't seen it in a while, it's a great time to go. The weather is supposed to be spectacular this weekend too -- sunny, warm and perfect for an outing!

The street fair is planted right in the middle of downtown Mt. Vernon. Hundreds of artists will have their tents up for the first time this year with lots of fabulous stuff. The festival is Friday through Sunday (Apr 21-23), 10am-6pm on Fri and Sat, and 10am-5pm on Sunday. We are stretched up and down Main Street, and my booth location is the same one I've had for years now -- right in front of Draft Pics bar near the corner of Myrtle.

Here's the link to the Tulip Festival website for details about all the events happening during this month of the festival, including details about this weekend's street fair.

It's always a little hectic trying to get ready for the first big show . . . did I remember the bungees? the cash box? the shopping bags? So many pieces to pack up. Today is moving the mountain of stuff to the car day. And double checking everything. And getting all the last minute stuff done. Chop chop!
