Thanksgiving Point Giveaway!

My giveaway today combines two of my absolute favorite things. Combined into one! With the coming of Spring I love to see the world come to life, especially in the form of flowers. And tulips are one of my absolute favorites.

So what is even more exciting for me is the Tulip Festival at one of my favorite places in the world, Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah. I really had no idea what it was until I moved up here and had the chance to go. It is an AMAZING place. From their gardens to their Museum of Ancient Life there is something for everyone to love. You really have to visit to see what I mean. They have these fun kid friendly gardens with amazing things for the kids to do and explore. And then they have the main gardens that are SO. BIG. they will blow your mind. I have no idea how they created such a beautiful place where they did. It doesn't seem that big, but then you get in there and are amazed.

The exciting news for me, and for you, is that they have extended their Tulip Festival a week, so now it goes through Saturday May 7. In fact, on Saturday May 7 they have from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. a Tulip Princess Tea Party hosted by the winners of the April 15 Tulip Princess Pageant. The Tea Party will serve lemonade and cookies to visitors and is included with the gardens entry admission. The event will also feature a mini-fashion show with tulip-inspired outfits and kids games. Doesn't that sound fun?!! (If you do go, RSVP :)

In addition to the colorful blooms, Thanksgiving Point’s Tulip Festival will include music from local bands, bagpipers and string quartets, craft vendors and food every Friday and Saturday including the extended weekend of May 6-7. Other family-fun activities will take place throughout the festival:
  • Guest photo contest will be judged by Thanksgiving Point Facebook fans. The winning photo will be published in the Thanksgiving Point Gazette and the winner will receive an annual membership to Thanksgiving Point.
  • An exhibit featuring photo contest entries and winners from 2010 will be on display throughout the festival.
  • Daily garden tours and demonstrations are included with admission.

I know for sure we are going! What about you?

Fortunately, I can make it easier for one of my readers by giving you Four Tickets to the Tulip Festival. You'll have to use them by May 7, but I have a feeling that won't be a problem for most of you!!

PS I was given four tickets to the Tulip Festival for doing this giveaway. All opinions are my very own. Just so you know. :)


  1. I want to go!! I've always wanted to go. I'm a follower!

  2. Did you know that Thanksgiving Point is my absolute favorite place in Utah?! What I like? The waterfall and the Secret Garden are my favorites in the big gardens. My kids looooooooove everything in the Discovery garden. I want an annual pass!

  3. The gardens are by far my favorite thing there! I did a race there last year that wound through the gardens for a bit-even though it was in Oct it was still SO beautiful! The kids love the children's garden too. :)

  4. and I'm a follower friend!

    (are ya sick of my comments yet? Can you tell I'd really like to go and am feeling cheap? lol)

  5. And just for good measure....
    I actually think you are cool for a number of reasons! Though I don't know you as well as I'd like to, I admire your spunk and style, and you are such a kind person! I admire your musical talent as well-I think that too many people don't appreciate music so I always have a soft spot for people who really do!

  6. Sharla! you are sooooo cool. I wish we got to spend more time together, I always love visiting with you....

  7. I am kerri's sister in law! That should count for something. : ) I do now follow your blog, and follow on FB, and am feeling almost ashamed that I have lived here more than 8 years and not been to the tulip festival!!!

  8. I want to go! I have never been to the tulip festival and think it would be really cool to see.

  9. Almost forgot, following Thanksgiving Point on FB.

  10. I love the gardens at Thanksgiving Point but I haven't been during the tulip festival. We'd love to go this week.
