Tulips of the Fraser Valley

Tulips of The Valley

The Tulips of the Valley is part the Agassiz Tulip Festival, a yearly event that the whole family can enjoy. Tulips of the Valley offers a 40 acre field featuring tulips in all shapes and sizes. With this many bulbs, you won’t have to tip toe through the tulips. You can just stomp your way through!

Getting to Tulips of the Valley from Vancouver is an hour and a half drive along the Trans Canada Highway. Normally, I would never drive this far just to see a few hundred thousand tulips. As luck (or lack of) would have it, I had to attend a birthday party for one of Sally’s cousins at Castle (not)Fun Park, which is out in a very lonely place known as Abbotsford and not that far from the tulip fest. As lonely as Abbotsford is, it’s a hive of activity compared to Agassiz. If there was no tulip festival happening, there wouldn’t be anything to do there, except maybe milk a cow.

There were quite a few people with a lot of really professional looking photography equipment wandering the fields. No doubt the tulips offer a really good subject to shoot and show off one’s photo skill. Unfortunately, the only digital camera I had was a point and shoot. I think I took some pretty good shots.

Tulips of the Valley is happening now until May 3. Cost of admission is $2.50 per adult and free for children 12 and under. However, no one brother to ask us for money when we went in. I guess they were busy in the tulip fields.

    The tulips weren’t too bad, what really stood out was the cute kid in the photo, especially that last photo which is exceptional.

    1. Yeah, Sally is precious.

        It’s a shame they have to grow up. That is one reason one should always take heaps of photos. I’ve found they are a good trigger for bringing back memories of the days when you didn’t have to worry about boyfriends and they didn’t talk back.

        1. Jake Stone says:

          Many have a band of kids. There can be twenty years between the oldest and the youngest and between them can fit more than few. I wonder if constantly seeing the wonder of life would be one reason to have one child after another…

    1. whoah! $50 for a dozen? When was this and what country??

      then only time I paid a lot for Tulips was during Mothers Day but any other time, these are fairly priced ($12-20/doz) depending on the quality.

      1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        I’m in Malaysia, the price is included import charges + wrapping and decoration, that’s why it’s expensive. haha! No cure, I have to buy because my gf love it. 😀
        $12-20/doz is quite cheap man, you’re so lucky.

    1. John Chow says:

      What icon? Are you talking about a watermark? Most photo editing software can do that for you.

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        Sorry, what I meant by “icon” was in fact “avatar”. but that’s ok. Thank you anyway 😉

        1. John Chow says:

          You need to log into gavatar and upload an image.

          1. Benjamin Cip says:

            I created a gravatar, thanks for the advice John 🙂

  27. I just thought Tulips came from Holland only, now I see they can came from Canada too.

    The color of the tulips in landscape looks awesome.

    No wonder many make the journey to take photos of tulips. They don’t move (much), jump around, throw ice cream at you, scream their lungs out, complain schedule, all that and they are colorful too.
