The City of Holland Parks Department and Tulip Time festival organizers are asking for help planting 75,000 tulip bulbs for next year's tulip festival.

Community Tulip Planting Day is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 13 at Window on the Waterfront Park, located on 6th St. between Columbia Ave. and College Ave., from 8:00 a.m. - Noon. The rain date is Oct. 20 at the same time and place.

Volunteers are needed for two shifts: 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. - Noon. Just two hours will go a long way towards making the annual Tulip Time festival a big success for Holland and all of West Michigan.

Tulip Time 2019 is set for May 4 - May 12.
