The Tulip Time Steering Committee, the Pella Historical Society and the Pella Parks Department are asking for help from Pella residents as Tulip time nears. Dick Redman, chair of the steering committee tells KNIA/KRLS News that they would appreciate it if no blankets, tarps, folding chairs or any other items be placed along the parade route curbs before 6AM Thursday morning. People have already placed such items to reserve good viewing for the parade. The committee is concerned that the items may damage grass, and that their placement in the grass or curbside may not offer the best impression to visitors. And for all Tulip Time events, the Big Red Radio will be on the square broadcasting live. KNIA/KRLS is the official radio station of Tulip Time.
