The sun is shining, and tulips are bursting with colour. It couldn't be a better lead up to tomorrow's visit by Princess Margriet to Goderich Liberation Memorial Park located at Highway 21 and Hamilton Street. These pictures were taken in front of Library Park in Clinton, where the celebration of friendship between the Netherlands and Canada is expressed with a magnificent bed of tulips.
Princess Margriet and her husband Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven landed last night in Toronto and will be traveling through Huron County Sunday on the first leg of their official visit to Canada. On the occasion of Canada's 150th anniversary, Princess Margriet has been in high demand. She has been asked to attend many functions, but has had to decline as she will only be in Canada for one official visit in 2017. The Organizers on the Dutch-Canadians Remember as One committee feel they found favour with the Hague because of Huron County's previous successful celebrations at Liberation Memorial Park. In particular, the 2005 celebration of friendship was amazing. You can find out more about it at www.dutch-canadiansremember.ca
The public is invite to gather tomorrow at the park 2:30 pm. If you wish to attend the concert that follows, some tickets are still available online.
