    Who knew? Not only is Ottawa's Canadian Tulip Festival (May 9-19, 2014) North America's largest, it's a stunning display of floral gardens along with: live music, classic car show, vintage planes airshow, floral artwork, arts and crafts, diverse cultural performances, and a closing ceremony that features the festival's traditional Lake of Fire fireworks display over Dow's Lake — and yes, there's even a kids corner with arts, crafts, music and lots of fun.

    Seems it won't be just the nearly 300,000 colorful tulips in 60 different varieties that will be dancing in the breeze!
