Tulip fest

Agritourism events such as the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival near Woodburn, Ore., are growing in popularity. Oregon State University Extension is asking farmers and others who invite visitors onto their operations to fill out a survey.

The 27th annual Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Ore., is wrapping up this weekend.

Attendance for the 38-day festival was off slightly from the last two seasons, said Barb Iverson, event producer and coordinator.

"Our weekends were great this year, but the weekday attendance was way down due to the wet weather," Iverson said.

"We still have nice color," Iverson said May 2.

The festival includes more than 40 acres of tulips and daffodils, a children's area and gift shop.

Admission on weekends is $10 per car load.

The event wraps up May 6.

Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
