Bus Trip To Tulip Time Festival In Pella Iowa

The Peoria County Farm Bureau Public Relations Committee is sponsoring a two-day trip to the Tulip Festival in Pella, Iowa on Thursday, May 3 and Friday, May 4.

The bus will leave the Peoria County Farm Bureau building on May 3 at 6:30 a.m. We will be taking one Peoria Charter Coach with 52 passengers. The cost is $80.00 per person based on double occupancy.

The first stop will be made around 8:30 a.m. for breakfast (on your own). Our group plans to arrive in Pella at approximately 12:30 p.m. You will have reserved seating for the 1:00 p.m. Grandstand Show and the 2:30 p.m. parade. From there you can choose the events you would like to attend. Some of the options are: Pella Historical Village and Vermeer Windmill Tour, Scholte House Museum Tour, Tractor Rodeo and Dutch Crafts Market (Just to note: Thursday will be your only opportunity to see the Tractor Rodeo since we will be leaving Friday prior to the rodeo).

At 6 p.m. we will be leaving Pella for the hotel in Grinnell, Iowa. You can choose to have supper in Pella before leaving or there is a restaurant next to the hotel.

On Friday, May 4, a continental breakfast is available at the hotel. At 9 a.m. we will load the bus and return to Pella. You will be free to do whatever you wish until we leave for home at 4 p.m. We will stop for supper around 6 p.m.
