The Art Within the Tulips

All photos by Andre Gagne

Another Canadian Tulip Festival has wound down over the Victoria Day Holiday seeing many crowds fill Dow's Lake and Lansdowne Park. This year's festival saw spectacular arrays of fireworks, some big band jazz, magic and more but, of course, the star attractions were the tulips that bloom beautiful colour all over the city this time of year.

Ottawa Life photographer Andre Gagne has been photographing these flowers for many years and as the festival bids farewell for another season we share some of the artistic ways you can showcase the beauty of this event.
