Spring arrives early at Metropolis at Metrotown for the second annual I Heart Tulips installation, the largest one-day indoor tulip display in Canada. On Saturday, March 7, an awe-inspiring installation of 14,000 live tulips will be unveiled in Metropolis at Metrotown’s Grand Court. Arranged in multiple heart shapes, the multi-coloured tulips will be on display for one day only.
I Heart Tulips will feature various photo opportunities and pose-worthy selfie locations, including life-sized photo frames, a replica mini flower stand, and an adorable tulip-filled baby carriage.
From 10am to 11am, visitors will have the opportunity to view the full display of tulips from all three levels of the mall, from 10am to 11am. For the rest of the day, the tulips will be available for picking, at a cost of eight stems for $5 or 20 stems for $10. Proceeds will go to Variety – the Children’s Charity. Keepsake Polaroids will be available by donation, with all proceeds going to Variety – the Children’s Charity, which has been providing direct help to B.C. children with special needs for more than 50 years.
This marks the 2nd edition of I Heart Tulips. It debuted in January of last year and was a great success. The event was created by Kate Onos-Gilbert and Davy Onos from Onos Greenhouses Ltd. and founders of Tulips of the Valley – the company behind the enormously popular Chilliwack Tulip Festival (established 2006) and the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival (established 2018), which take place in the Fraser Valley each year.
