    Great! No Tulip Festival tho, eh? Looks like lots of markets to go and see!

  2. Hi Margaret,

    The Agassiz and Skagit Valley festivals ended in April unfortunately. Other garden options would be Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, UBC Botanical Gardens, and Queen Elizabeth Park/Bloedel Conservatory.

    Have a great weekend!
