Take a unique virtual tour of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

VIDEO: Photographer creates unique tour of Skagit Valley tulips

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to put a damper on our spring season, one local photographer decided he was going to do his part to keep an annual North Sound tradition alive.

When the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival was canceled at the end of March, gardens such as Roozengaarde lost a majority of their revenue overnight.

So photographer Rudy Willingham got to work, asking people to send in their family photos.

He then cut certain parts of the image out, and filled them in with flowers.

The photos gave families a chance to enjoy a virtual visit to one of the Pacific Northwest’s most colorful festivals. You can support the Roozengaarde by visiting tulips.com and tulipcutouts.com.

Rudy Willingham is a local creative we’ve showcased on our social media many times.
