Every year in January, the Tulip season kicks off with the Nation Tulip Day, organized by the Dutch Tulip Farmers, in Amsterdam. This year, the event was held on January 16th at Dam Square, where a “picking garden” was created with more than 200,000 Tulips. More than 10,000 people attended this event, where you can pick your free tulip bouquet to take back home.
I attended this event with a photography meetup group, to experience the festivity and click some pictures. It was a great experience (though it was extremely busy), the sun was out (yay), the setting was colorful and there was a live band playing dutch music.
Hope you like the pictures from the event –
