Tulip Festival

This Weekend i went up to holland with this group to Jessica Frasso's house in Holland, MI. They have this famous annual Tulip Festival and it was my first time. It was all rained out except for a parade on Saturday. The parade was fun... we got to be loud. Beyond that, we were just being crazy and enjoying eachother's company. Life was good.

RHYTHM OF THE RAIN
Downpour doesn't dampen parade spirit
By NATHAN PECK, TEREASA NIMS and OLIVIA COBISKEY Staff writers
As fire engines from the Holland Fire Department brought up the rear of the parade, two groups of college students from Indiana showed their Tulip Time spirit.
"We've got spirit, yes we do! We've got spirit, how about you?" they shouted at one another across Eighth Street.
Erica Hedges of Holland brought several of her classmates from Manchester College in Manchester, Ind., to check out the festival.
"We have spirit. It's Tulip Time," said Julie Hamm, who was dressed in a Dutch costume. "This is my first time, but I absolutely love it. I can't wait to come back."
The students across the street were from Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Ind., said Brent Dongell, who had answered Hedges' cry with a hardy, "We've got spirit!"
