US: Tiptoe through the tulips at this annual flowery fest in Waxahachie

A flower festival mounts a comeback this spring: Called Tulipalooza, it's an annual charity fundraiser in Waxahachie specializing in tulips, and this year will take place at the Waxachachie Civic Center from March 19-28.

There'll be a quarter million tulips imported from Holland. Although actually, that should say tulip bulbs. They import the bulbs, then grow them in Waxahachie into flowers, which the likes of you and me can buy. The tulip farm first opened in spring 2019, and describes itself as the biggest tulip farm in the Waxahachie area, not likely a claim anyone would dispute.

Tulipalooza is a venture by Poston Gardens Foundation, to raise money to fund scholarships at Daymark Living, a residential community for adults with intellectual and developmental  disabilities.
