Too cold to tiptoe through the tulips

The Tiptoe Through the Tulips event at Cominco Gardens, planned as part of the First Saturday celebrations tomorrow has been cancelled.

The reason is simple — it’s been so cold that the tulips aren’t blooming yet.

Cominco Gardens has spectacular tulip beds and it was hoped to showcase them this weekend, while Selkirk students fundraised with a lemonade and cookie stand.

However, cold spring weather has delayed everything and the event will be pushed back until the flowers are in full bloom. It shouldn’t be too long if it warms up this weekend as promised. Stay tuned.

All other First Saturday events are still on as advertised.
