8th Annual Lewes Tulip Celebration, April 6-17
We love flowers here at Baywood Greens, so we just had to mention the Lewes Tulip Celebration. Check out the beautiful spring tulips in all their gorgeous glory, ride the Tulip Trolley, and check out the submissions to the tulip photography contest. This year Lewes planted 19,500 tulips and spring bulbs, compared to 15,000 last year. That’s a lot of tulips!

In conjunction with the Tulip Celebration, this is the first year for a restaurant-week inspired event!

The amazing grand prize is a 2-night stay at the Dogfish Inn!
