A crowd of around 200 people filled the seats of the Pella Community Center Auditorium Tuesday evening to watch Tulip Queen Heidi Schulte and the Royal Court deliver their Tulip Time program for the first time in Pella. Queen Heidi’s court consists of Morgan Anderson, Courtney Kelderman, Bekah Posthuma and Sara Van Gorp.
The Royalty Party was one of the first public events for the five young ladies, who spoke and sang songs telling the 75-year-old story of Tulip Time in Pella. The evening also featured a performance by the Pella Dutchesses, who sang and danced on stage. Both groups of young ladies will be very busy during Tulip Time, which is May 6th, 7th and 8th.
