This past week I had an awesome opportunity to take pictures at the Pella Tulip festival, although because of the weird weather this year the tulips had already come and gone. Fortunately the parade involved lots of cute kids dressed up in Dutch costumes, adults also dressed in authentic Dutch clothing, and some other beautiful flowers. The town as a whole was beautiful and there were lots of cute shops with handmade goods, plus funnel cake and other fair food. Definitely an event I’d recommend if you’re ever in Iowa!
Do you have any cute regional events near you that you’d recommend to visitors?
Last weekend I had the best time going out with the other students in my year. First, we spent most of the afternoon at Ledges State Park, where I took all of the pictures for this weeks’ photography Friday, and then we went to see The Hunger Games together, which I reviewed earlier this week (review spoiler – it was awesome!). Unfortunately I was the only one who had read the book, so we weren’t able to discuss the finer nuances of bits that were changed or left out, but I think everyone enjoyed the movie – although perhaps not quite as much as I did! Definitely a good weekend 🙂 What are your plans this weekend? If you haven’t seen The Hunger Games yet, are you planning on it?
