Saturday - Celebrate the National Tulip Day in Amsterdam

Despite the chilly weather and the snow, today it's the official start date of the Dutch tulip season.

To celebrate, a specially arranged tulip garden with more than 200.000 plants is set up on the Dam in Amsterdam and between 13.00 and 18.00 and people are allowed (in fact, encouraged) to pick their bunch of tulips.

Join the event on Facebook and get there before 12.30 to reserve your spot in the queue of the tulip pickers.

Whoever takes the best picture of the event wins a flight over Keukenhof and the tulip fields!
