Albany, NY: Tulip Festival

Happy Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely moms out there!

It’s a beautiful day here in Albany, New York. My hubby and I decided to go to the Annual Tulip Festival at Washington Park today. The festival celebrates the city’s rich Dutch heritage.

The Tulip Fest is held every spring during Mother’s Day weekend in May. It’s one of my favorite events — more than a 100,000 tulips of different varieties are blooming around the park!

The flowers are not the only reason why we come to the festival. We are also here for the food, arts & crafts exhibit, and live music.

I guess we will be here at the park for a few more hours to listen to the band and eat some more — Philly cheese steak, Quesadillas, Gyro, and Chicken BBQ. There are so many options!

  1. such a beautiful photos:) The flowers and the blue sky really warm up the heart. My favourite festival in Copenhagen is ” Copenhagen Cooking” where I can taste many different restaurants at a fraction of their normal price. Also “Culture Night” where the city best secret attractions open from 6pm – 12pm and I can enter all the sights with only one price. Perfect:)

    1. ”Copenhagen Cooking” I would love to go to that one. My husband and I are foodies so this really sounds like a great festival! ” Culture Night” sounds fun too – being able to save and check out all the sights. Thank you so much for sharing😊

      2. You are welcome. Before blogging here, we joined a travbuddy where people write their travels experience and meet with other traveller all over the world. Unfortunately our beloved site was closed down and we could not find any site we like, therefore we start our own blogs. We hope to share our travel stories with like minded people and hopefully one day can meet up and chat in person:)

      8. opss… my mistake. I can’t find the twitter bar on the wordpress. What I did is, click on twitter button at the bottom of the stories and then send twitt to your twitter account. thats it. Hope that help:)

      9. For instagram. you go to customize on your website. and go to widget . choose where do you want to put the instagram, “on side bar or footnote”, then add the instagram. It will appear on your website.
