Tulip Festival, Skagit Valley, WA Rain Or Shine

Per request, I am scheduling trip to the Tulip Festival.  My hope is that we do not encounter as much traffic as it is on the weekend.

We will drive along the tulip fields, with opportunities for picture time in and out of the fields.  

Either before or after, we can stop at the Mt. Vernon Co-op for organic dinner.

What to bring:  Camera, rain jacket, $10 gas money for driver, and a smile on your face. 

I will need 3 peeps in my car to make this trip happen and will leave ON TIME

NOTE: Please keep in mind that I have a No-Show and late cancellation policy in place.

    Gabriele, I was at the P&R at 330pm so I went into HD and Costco to pass time. When I went to the P&R, it was no later than 405pm and I looked everywhere for you guys. I thought y'all might have been a little late so I stayed close to 430pm before I eventually left. Just letting you know, I was there. Really, I've got the HD and Costco receipts with date and time to prove it.

    Thanks so much, Gabriella, for facilitating this trip. Got some great photos, which I'll upload soon. As for Ben, sorry for the missed connection, but I know we waited at least until 4:15 or so, and even cruised the lot looking for people. It's always a good idea to arrive 15 to 30 minutes early. I got at the transit center about 3:30 and stayed there (not tried to kill time at Costco, etc.). Sorry, Ben, what a bummer for you, but we really tried to look for you.

    Just leaving work and have a chance to look at the comments. Joe and Heidy come along if it is not to late. Susan. Sorry to miss you. New job and being sick .... Hit the sack as soon as I was home

    Sorry, what I meant was that Susan is planning to leave for the Tulip Festival early, which should mean at least one extra spot available for those on the I wait list.

    Looks like Susan isn't going. I take that to mean that at least one spot has opened on the wait list, so I plan to be at the Aurora village transit center at 4. Hope I haven't ruffled any feathers.

    Hi Gabriele and fellow GUGOOs,

    I am going to peel off from the group and go up to see the tulips earlier. Especially because it is so rainy. I am looking forward to going and maybe I'll see you there.

    Gabriele, do you have me noted as driving. I can fit 4 additional people. Any decision if we are leaving earlier?

    Hey Gabriele, How many people are going? My daughter and granddaughter are interested in coming along. I could drive them in my car. Are we meeting earlier?

    I am really looking forward to this,

    I took my reservation off for now because I'm not sure if I can make it. I will try but not sure

    I do agree, if we could leave a little earlier to beat rush hour traffic that would be fantastic. I'm open to that as well.

    I can go earlier-2 or 3. Let me know.

  • Brigitte

    Hi Gabriele. Could you put it out there to see if everyone can go a little earlier like 2:00 PM or 3 PM to beat traffic?

    April 13

  • Susan S.

    Yeah! Thanks, Gabriele. I am so looking forward to this.

    Ok. I will request a 1/2 off. I think I should already accumulated a day or two. Thank you for getting on this! I can drive!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
