(TLN) Last week, Mayor Marc Demers accompanied by members of the executive-committee and the city’s economic development team, took part in the Laval Tulip Festival.
They were greeted by agricultural producers from Laval, including Saveurs de Laval, Ferme Marineau and Agneaux de Laval. Another event – Samedis à la ferme (Saturdays at the farm) – opened the following day, bringing together artists and painters in an event that continues until June 2.
Laval is the only city in Quebec, and possibly also in Quebec, that offers the opportunity to handpick tulips. The tulip field contains 520,000 bulbs in 14 different varieties. At the same time, local farm products are available for sale. Last year, more than 30,000 people dropped by.
