March 4, 2011

Apr ’11
1:30 pm

UPDATE #2: Change in date due to weather and late blooming to 30 APRIL:

On April 30, those wishing to carpool will meet at 1:30pm at the Club House located at 1602 East 2100 South for the annual Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival. We plan on arriving at the festival at 2:15pm for those wishing to meet at Thanksgiving Point rather than the Club House. The festival Features 250,000 tulips spread throughout the 55-acre Thanksgiving Point Gardens. The festival is an awe-inspiring sight that is redesigned each year, so even if you’ve gone previously, it will be a new experience. For more information about the festival, please click here.

Date: Saturday, April 30
Time: 1:30pm (from Sugarhouse Park Garden Center, arriving at Thanksgiving Point around 2:15pm) NOTE: If you are interested in having lunch at Thanksgiving Point’s Harvest Restaurant at 11:30am, prior to touring the gardens, please let Dave Mash know or contact us through the Contact Page. Those not carpooling or meeting for lunch should arrive at Thanksgiving Point around 2:15pm.
Where: For those wishing to carpool, meet at Sugarhouse Park Garden Center, 1602 East 2100 South, otherwise, meet at Thanksgiving Point (see map and information below)
Cost: $10 (plus a few dollars for car-pooling)

For those members driving directly to Thanksgiving Point and coming from Salt Lake City, Take I-15 south. Take exit 284 (Alpine/Highland). Turn right and proceed west just past the bridge to Garden Drive (if you go to the golf clubhouse, you’ve gone too far). Turn right onto Garden Drive and proceed .5 miles to the garden parking area (large circle), #12 on the map here.

No alternative rain date has been set.
