City of Boulder's Annual Tulip Bulb Giveaway!
The most anticipated few hours of summer are nearly upon us: no, not the BolderBoulder, not CU's first home game, or even String Cheese at Red Rocks, we are talking about the City of Boulder's Annual Tulip Bulb Giveaway. All those delightful beauties that bloom on the mall every spring are up for grabs as the City's Park and Rec Department hands them out on a first come, first serve basis tomorrow, August 27, starting at 11:30 a.m. on the 1300 Block of Pearl Street. (Note: For City of Boulder residents only)
There will be about 300 to 400 bags of tulips available. Parks and Recreation staff changes the variety and color of the tulips planted on the Pearl Street Mall every year to provide a unique and impressive display each spring. Each fall, staff plant about 15,000 new tulip bulbs. After the bloom, staff removes the bulbs to make way for summer plantings, storing them until the annual tulip bulb give-away each August. Pearl Street Mall tulips are imported directly from Holland from a wholesale provider.
So come on down and grab a big 'ol Boulder bag of blossoming bulbs to make your yard as pretty as April in Downtown! Now if we could just get those buskers and hotdog carts on your lawn too...
