The annual Orange City Tulip Festival Extravaganza will be held Wednesday, March 22, at Prairie Winds Event Center. The event features a luncheon starting at 11:30 a.m. with the program to follow during which the costumes for the 2023 Tulip Queen and Court are revealed and the 2023 parade marshals will be introduced.
The 2023 Tulip Court will also present their traveling road show for the first time. The road show, which the festival royalty wrote and will present to various organizations, schools, and residential care facilities this spring, tells of the events and attractions at Tulip Festival and gives a detailed overview of their costumes.
Tulip Court members for the 2023 Tulip Festival include Katelyn Huizenga, daughter of Aaron and Kim Huizenga, Amanda Hulstein, daughter of Brent and Mary Hulstein, Elizabeth King, daughter of Don & Miranda King, Nevaeh Sampson, daughter of Brent and Teresa Sampson, and Kinzie Van Kekerix, daughter of Leroy and Jasey Van Kekerix.
An additional highlight will be a “teaser” of the upcoming Tulip Festival Night Show production of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat! The cast has been tirelessly rehearsing the show and some members will be present to share the progress with attendees.
