WOODBURN – The Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival opens Saturday, and an estimated 145,000 are expected to visit within the upcoming weeks.
Organizers call the event “Oregon’s Largest Spring Event.” Visitors can wander through more than 40 acres of tulips, in various stages of bloom.
Old-fashioned hayrides and free tram rides will also be available for visitors who would rather not walk.
The festival is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day until May 1. The cost is five dollars per vehicle on weekdays, ten dollars per vehicle on weekends.
The Iverson family farm has hosted the event for 26 years.
