Tulipmania 2014 at Springfields in Spalding

Have your say

Hundreds of people turned out in the sunshine for day one of the Tulipmania Festival at Springfrields in Spalding.

They were treated to a glimpse of the past with stunning static displays pinned with thousands of tulip heads and non-stop entertainment throughout the day.

The highlight was the judging of the prince and princess competition. Georgie Van Dyke (10) and Joseph Porter (6) were the winners and were joined in the procession through Springfields gardens by all of the other entrants and last year’s Spalding Flower Queen Inca Honnor, who was thrilled to wear her fabulous peppermint dress one more time.

The weekend continues tomorrow with a classic car show. Don’t miss next week’s Free Press and Spalding Guardian for full coverage of the weekend’s events, plus more from the church flower festivals and the Moulton Chapel Tuliptime Festival.
