Tulip Time in Holland, MI 2014!!!

Spring means flowers...The 2014 Holland Tulip Time Festival is May 3 through 10 this year. Let's meetup in Holland and shoot the sites and tulips! There is much to see, do and shoot at this festival...An authentic windmill, a parade, costumed dancers, an old dutch village, the lakeshore, the Big Red Lighthouse, and of course lots and lots of tulips! I usually spend a weekend in the Holland area each spring and always come away with great photos! Join me this year and make some beautiful photographs at the 2014 Tulip Time Festival!

Meetup at Veldheer Tulip Farm & Gardens 12755 Quincy St, Holland, MI 49424 at 9:00 AM Saturday

      If you like to take pictures of tulips locally, it's hard to beat the White Chapel in Troy.
      Their annual tulip festival photo contest starts today, May 4th, 2014.
      I'll add a link in the Discussions section.

    I just just checked the weather radar for Holland and the rain is passing over as I write this. A few or some clouds in the sky make for very dramatic images. And wet forground adds to the dynamic and catches light. Hoping for the best and leaving A2 in 20 minutes. C U all there again my phone number is[masked] and I'll be wearing a yellow jacket and black ProCam hat.

    I was looking at the weather. It's a good chance rain until about 3pm or at least cloudy. Is there anyone that will still be there about 3pm or so? I was thinking sunset on Lake Michigan, especially by the tunnel park area would be awesome to take pictures.

    May 3, 2014

  • Thomas N.

    OK so I've been watching the weather forecast for tomorrow. they are saying showers in the early am and partly sunny mid morning and afternoon.
    We are leaving A2 at 4am to arrive by 6:30am. We will be at Veldheer Tulip farms at 9am. Please look for me and introduce your self I WILL BE WEARING A YELLOW NORTHFACE JACKET AND A ProCam black hat.

    1 · April 30, 2014

    • Debbie M.

      Tom I'm not sure I can get out that early, but I'm going to try. So I don't want to promise to caravan then. What time are you leaving the AA area?

    Unfortunately something came up for that day.

  • Thomas N.

    Hi..I don't want to do an overnight..is there anyone I can ride from Ann Arbor with? I'll help with gas. My number is[masked] or email me..thanks

    1 · April 27, 2014

    • Patrick M.

      Like Thomas. I'm another Ann Arborite who is carless. Between Thomas and I, we can ensure a driver does not have to pay for gas (or lunch). Thanks for the help, I mean lift:-) My number is five one seven, four four two, seven six one five

      1 · April 29, 2014

    • Thomas N.

      So I'm car pooling and weather permitting leaving Ann Arbor very early Saturday morning we want to arrive in time for first or at least early light on big red. I have to be back in A2 by 4 to teach a photowalk at 5, its not easy being the "assistant" organizer of such a big group..love it!

      1 · April 29, 2014

  • Lawrence Leverett J.

    I'll be there on Saturday along with my girlfriend and another friend of ours too. We'll be meeting up with another group of people in the afternoon so I'll likely be spending the morning with you all then head in a different direction later on.

    April 28, 2014

    • Thomas N.

      Try to contact me in the early am or Friday night..I'm shooting first light at the lighthouse..

      April 28, 2014

    • Lawrence Leverett J.

      I'll see how early we're up. Ill be driving to my friends late on Friday night after my bowling league so I may not show up until 9 am or a little later on Saturday morning.

      April 29, 2014

  • Mandy B.

    How long will the group be together?

    April 28, 2014

  • Donna

    My daughter has prom that day..may try to come up for a Sunday walk.

    April 28, 2014

  • Sharp M.

    Hi Jack,
    Any particular places you recommend for staying overnight in the Holland / Grand Haven area during the event?

    April 2, 2014

    • Debbie M.

      I'm just planning to go for the day as well.

      1 · April 27, 2014

    • Debbie M.

      I'm sorry to say that I won't be able to go to Holland after all because a family thing came up for that morning. I do hope to go to the walk later that day, though, if it's still on and there's an opening for it. :)

      April 28, 2014

  • Sharp M.

    I have added an entry in the Discussion area about the predicted weather for May 3rd in Holland.
    Hopefully it'll help some folks plan their trip.

    Is it too early to discuss carpooling from Ann Arbor. Also any cool place to drink and dine to exchange notes on our pictures? I know of a few good breweries on the one street where the parade happens. Let's discuss when the time is right!
