One of the most beautiful and fragrant events is taking over a mall in Burnaby, B.C. next month. Saturday, March 7, for one day only, you can visit I Heart Tulips at Metropolis in Metrotown. There will be over 14,000 real tulips blooming in support of an incredible cause. When we say it’s for one day only we mean it. So start marking your calendars.
I Heart Tulips is no exception to that and it is coming to Metrotown in Burnaby very soon.
Even though spring doesn’t officially begin until March 19, it is blooming a little earlier this year.
Next month, a beautiful art installation will be bringing 14,000 live tulips to Metrotown’s Grand Court.
For one day only on March 7, you can take your picture in a beautiful sea of different coloured flowers.
All of the tulips will be arranged in adorable heart shapes in support of the Children’s Charity.
Anyone who is interested in seeing them can head down to the mall and take in the full view from all three levels of the mall.
If you are interested in taking photos, just be sure to come dressed in whatever you feel comfortable in.
Props including a life-sized photo frame, replica mini flower stand, and an adorable tulip-filled baby carriage will be there to use at your disposal.
Keepsake Polaroids will also be on location so you can get a printed picture to purchase for a small donation.
Photo opportunities with the tulips will take place from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. After that, the tulips will be on sale and available for the picking.
A collection of eight gorgeous flowers will only cost you $5 or you can spend a little extra and receive 20 stems for $10.
Either way, you can feel good about your purchase since all the proceeds will go to charity.
Plus, your home needs that little pop of colour this time of year.
This is the second year the I Heart Tulip festival has been featured in the mall.
Since the 2019 event was such a success, we strongly recommend getting there early in order to get a pic before all the tulips are sold out.
This event is giving us serious sunflower festival vibes and we love it.
Just be sure to respect your surroundings so everyone can enjoy and take pictures.
