Check Out Pearl Dive Project – BodyVox
BodyVox returns to the Pearl Dive Project, taking an unprecedented approach to dance-making. Artistic Directors Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland have invited a new group of highly creative individuals who have never worked in dance before, asking the question: “What will happen when artists and innovators working at the peak of their profession immerse themselves in a craft they’ve never considered?” The Pearl Dive Project melds creative worlds in a collaboration of movement and ideas, the likes of which have never been seen. Fri., Sat. & Sun. Event Details.


Check Out the Tulip Fest
The festival is open all through the week. During the week days you can wander through the tulip fields, check out the four acre garden, take the kids on a tram or hay wagon ride or just let them run in the children’s play area. The play area includes fun play structures, the famous duck races and even old fashioned tire swings to catch air on.

The weekends bring extra fun to the fest. Your kids can watch wooden shoe making or steam tractor demonstrations or you can wander through the crafter market place and peruse the offerings from various vendors. Up the excitement with a pony ride or let your little athletes get their energy out in the jump tents or scaling the rock wall. For adrenaline addicts there is a bungee jumper and a zip line to brave. Fri., Sat. & Sun. Event Details.
