The Tesselaar Tulip Festival is in full bloom, with the popular event delivering endless fun for kids young and old.

Held against a stunning and colourful backdrop of 900,000 tulips in flower at Silvan, the festival is a family-friendly event you won’t want to miss.

There are fun activities, market stalls and a variety of shows at the festival, which runs daily from 10am-5pm at the Tesselaar Flower Farm until October 14.

Active Week (1-4 October) features twice daily Peter Rabbit shows as well as face painting, storytelling and a fun trip down fairy hollow.

During Irish weekend (5-7 October), there will be Irish pipers and dancers, Celtic arts, Irish coffee and beers (not to mention a few lovable Leprechauns).

Tulipmania Week (8-14 October) is the last opportunity to celebrate the stunning tulips in all their glory before bidding them farewell for another year.
