Pella’s tulips ‘celebrate’ early this spring due to unusual warmth

PELLA — The Pella Convention and Visitors Bureau would like to invite you to “Double Your Days in our Dutch Village” this spring.

If tulips are your main interest, a visit to Pella should be planned within the next few weeks.

As you may have guessed, the spring warmth has persuaded the colors to arrive early this year. If your camera has been anxiously waiting for Pella tulip photo opts, early April is the time to pack that camera and journey to Pella!

This year, one Pella visit just won’t be enough.

Pella will “celebrate the blooming of the tulips” within the next few weeks and then “celebrate our heritage” during the 77th Annual Tulip Festival May 3-5.

The festival offers performances, parades, Dutch foods, Dutch dancers, Dutch costumes and so much more.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
