Tulip Town will close this weekend, midway through the traditional monthlong tulip festival in Skagit County.

The tulips bloomed a bit early this year and were in full bloom by the time the festival began April 1. Tulip Town opened in mid-March to show off the fields.

Only late variety tulips remain in bloom, the Tulip Town website notes.

The last day to tour the fields will be Sunday, April 17. Until then it’s open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at 15002 Bradshaw Road.

RoozenGaarde, at 15867 Beaver Marsh Road, also reports this weekend likely will have the last of the tulips in bloom. It’s open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
