This year’s Tulip Time festival is in the books. We had great weather in Pella for all three days despite the forecast of scattered showers all weekend long. The parade route was packed almost all three days that we went to watch.
While we didn’t do a whole lot with the typical tulip time festivities, we did run out to the Pella airport to checkout the fly-in breakfast. Not really knowing what we were getting in to, we were surprised to see an excellent spread of breakfast food. Of course, you always know the pancakes are going to be good when they have a griddle with the pancake batter dispenser on rollers. It was really good.
After we grabbed a bit to eat, we walked through to see some of the airplanes that were already there. Our friend Rick had two planes that were on display. One he has had for a while, but he also has a Pober Pixie which is a small, single-seater kit plane. Jacob had seen it in pieces in his garage a few years back, but it was more impressive to see it all put together.
Not to worry, we also indulged in our favorite Tulip Time food, poffertjees, not once but twice over the weekend.
