Pella Tulip Festival organizers worried about warm weather

Posted:
PELLA (KWWL) -

This late winter warm spell has organizers of the Tulip Time Festival in Pella worried.

The festival runs the first weekend in May but all three varieties have already broken from the ground. It usually takes six weeks from breaking ground for tulips to reach their full bloom, the festival is in seven weeks.

One man who has been planting the tulips for the festival for the past 20 years says it would be better if 4 inches of snow were on the ground.
