It was a sunny Sunday as my family spent a half day picnic at the Botanical Garden in line with the program of Wellington City Council “Spring Festival in Botanical garden with the ever popular Tulip Sunday – a great opportunity to enjoy one of the country ‘s biggest and best tulip displays as well as music and food.
According to the City Council,The annual festival (28 September – 12 October) is the time to enjoy the Garden at its most colourful and includes more than 50 events and activities.
The Council’s Environment Portfolio Leader, Councillor Celia Wade-Brown, says Tulip Sunday is great way to celebrate spring and the first day of daylight saving – something people will need to bear in mind if they are planning to come along. This year’s festival also marks the 60th anniversary of the first mass planting of spring bulbs at the Botanic Garden.
