In a parade field loaded with crowd-pleasers, the Tulip Time Steering Committee was able to find a way to narrow down the top entries in this year’s festival. The entry with the best use of tulips went to for its wooden shoe train, while Central College’s “Central Belle” was recognized for its use of lighting for the night parade. Pella Corporation’s “Mr. I Scream” ice cream truck and Vermeer Corporation’s homage to “Wynken, Blynken and Nod” tied for most original float entries, with Pella Corporation’s entry also given the award for “Wow Factor.”
