Ottawa Commercial Headshot Portrait Family Interior Photographer

 

The Canadian Tulip Festival has grown to become the largest Tulip Festival in the world!

 

It is a celebration founded on international friendship with the 1945 presentation of 100,000 tulip bulbs from Princess Juliana of the Netherlands to Ottawa, the Capital of Canada given in appreciation of the safe haven that members of Holland’s exiled royal family received during World War II in Ottawa and to  recognize  the role which Canadian troops played in the liberation of the Netherlands.
