Psssssst! Want Some Free Tulip Bulbs?


Mark down the date: Thursday, May 18, 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. That’s when the city’s annual, free, used tulip bulb giveaway takes place at Chippawa Park. Several thousand reclaimed bulbs – close to 10,000 – will be distributed to local residents on a first-come basis, limit of two dozen bulbs per resident, bring your own containers. Admiring these eyeball-poppers in Chippawa Park is Frank Reddon of the city’s horticultural staff. Dozens of people show up early to be among the first in line when bulbs are distributed, but absolutely no bulbs are given away before the 8 a.m. start. The action takes place outside the maintenance building, Fitch Street and First Avene. (Photos by Joe Barkovich)
