Tulip Festival Receives Funding for New Light Pole Banners

TulipFestivalLightPoleBannersORANGE CITY, IA. – New Tulip Festival promotional banners were recently hung on 40 light poles in Orange City after the Friends of the Festival Foundation received funding from the Iowa Tourism Office.

The new light pole banners were funded in part by a $5,000 grant from the Iowa Tourism Office.

The banners feature four Tulip Festival scenes, depicting the Dutch heritage and events that highlight the festival each year. Ten banners of each of the four designs were created, and hang along Albany Avenue and 8th Street/Highway 10.

“We extend our sincere gratitude to the Iowa Tourism Office for their significant financial support in the creation of our new light pole banners,” says Juliana Pennings, Tulip Festival and Community Tourism Director. “We feel the new banners are a wonderful representation of the rich culture our community holds and celebrates at Tulip Festival.”

In addition to the financial support of the festival’s new light pole banners, the Iowa Tourism Office actively assists in the promotion of travel to Orange City and Tulip Festival throughout the year.

“We are grateful for our partnership with the Iowa Tourism Office and their continued work in promoting travel to our community and around Iowa,” says Pennings. Information about the Iowa Tourism Office and the state’s many destinations and events can be found at www.traveliowa.com.
