Starting today on Instagram, you can win a day alone with BLOOM Abbotsford Tulip Festival‘s millions of tulips!
Win a Day Alone with BLOOM Abbotsford Tulip Festival’s Millions of Tulips
“We wanted to find a safe way to allow at least a few people from the same household onto the site to enjoy the tulips while still adhering to provincial COVID-19 guidelines,” said Alexis Szarek, founder of BLOOM, the Abbotsford Tulip Festival. “It will give us great joy to welcome the winner of this contest to BLOOM for this once in a lifetime experience.”
Enter to win a prize package that includes up to three hours alone in the BLOOM tulip fields at anytime of the time of the winner’s choice, including the popular sunrise or sunset times. The winner and their household may attend. In addition, the winner will have the chance to fill their own bucket with as many tulips as they can pick during their visit to BLOOM!
To enter, “like” the contest post on BLOOM’s Instagram and follow @abbotsfordtulipfestival, plus tag one friend. Both receive entries. The winner will be chosen Friday April 24th and will be contacted by direct message. The winner can only attend the festival along with members within their own household. Prize must be redeemed by May 1st, 2020.
Unfortunately, this year the pandemic has forced the cancellation of the beloved festival but the tulips had already been planted and now through to early May, acres of fields are in full bloom creating a stunning display along HWY 1 near the Sumas exit in Abbotsford. The event remains closed to the public until the BLOOM 2021 season.
